The Venice Film Festival receives the salute of Gotham | New


The Gotham Film & Media Institute said Monday (July 11) that the Venice International Film Festival will receive the Gotham Impact Salute at the 2022 Gotham Awards ceremony later this year.

The Gotham hierarchy noted Venice’s role in championing emerging and established filmmakers over the years like Darren Aronofsky, Kelly Reichardt, Todd Haynes, Regina King, Kenneth Lonergan, George A. Romero, Gus Van Sant and Julie Taymor.

Since 2013, the newly renamed Gotham Film & Media Institute has been an academic partner of the Biennale College Cinema – La Biennale di Venezia project dedicated to educating young people in artistic fields and the activities of the Biennale’s organizational structure.

Jeffrey Sharp, Executive Director of the Gotham Film & Media Institute, said: “In addition to presenting some of the greatest films each year, Venice has had a major impact on America’s independent film industry over several decades. [.]”

The Gotham Film & Media Institute in person ceremony must take place in New York on November 28. The full list of nominations and winners for the 2022 Gotham Awards will be announced at a later date.
