Bulgari Unveils Female-Centered Films At Tribeca Film Festival
Luxury brand recruited iconic filmmakers to create shorts inspired by the strength of women
Italian luxury brand Bulgari has joined forces with the Tribeca Film Festival that is currently underway in New York City until April 29. To launch its three-year partnership as the official jeweler of the festival, the brand will debut two exclusive films centered on female empowerment. Bulgari enlisted filmmakers Nina Meredith and Bella Monticelli to create the two shorts, which will be shown at private screenings during Tribeca.
Bulgari CEO Jean-Christophe Babin told The Hollywood Reporter, “Representing the rich history of Bulgari’s Roman roots, the two film shorts will serve as the brand’s next chapter in furthering its connection to cinema while bringing cultural issues to light in a contemporary way.”
Monticelli’s film, entitled Conducting a Revolution, tells the story of conductor and pianist Speranza Scappucci returing to Rome to conduct the Bellini opera at the Teatro dell’Opera di Roma. Meredith’s short, The Litas, follows three women from different backgrounds who are all part of the Rome chapter of the women’s motorcycle collective of the same name.
