EZIO GREGGIO OFFICIALLY OPENS THE 19th EDITION"This Monte-Carlo Film Festival brings laughter, hope and a message of peace to the world"
Monte Carlo 04/26/2022. The festival presentation press conference took place at the Monte Carlo Bay & Resort on Tuesday April 26 at 11:30 a.m. This year's jury was present with the double Oscar winner Paul Haggis, in the role of the president and with the actors Tom Leeb, Clara Ponsot and Pierpaolo Spollon.
"From Monte Carlo we send our signal of hope and a message of peace to the world, all united by comedy - said the creator and president of the Festival, Ezio Greggio, who added - This year the selection of films is dedicated to Monica Vitti, an incredible icon and actress of Italian and international cinema".

The president of the jury Paul Haggis echoes him: "It's true that we're going to have a great week here in Monte-Carlo to see comedies, but it's important to remember at this time also the Ukrainian people who, ironically fate, is led by a former actor. ".
During the press conference we talk about cinema, comedies, the selection of this edition and of course also projects that closely concern the other members of the jury.Tom Leeb: "I am also a musician and an actor and music allows me to express myself in another way. I definitely feel freer. I inherited something from my father and his profession, but it's important that people judge me for who I am and what I do, not because I have a famous last name. I'm writing a new screenplay and preparing a new album. And then there is a series called "Les Combattantes", which will be released at the end of the year on Netflix. »

For Clara Ponsot and her career, Italy remains important: "I am happy to be here for the Festival, it will be a great experience within the jury. My next project will be in France, but in Italy I have always worked with enthusiasm and I would like to work again with Emanuele Crialese, then I would like to work with Alice Rohrwacher, Matteo Garrone and with Paolo Sorrentino".
On Monday evening, the out-of-competition film "Competencia Oficial" opened screenings. The comedy written and directed by Gastón Duprat and Mariano Cohn, starring Penelope Cruz, Antonio Banderas and Oscar Martinez, was highly acclaimed.
From Tuesday 26 to Thursday 28 April, it's the turn of the eight films in competition. A selection of great quality and in each comedy there are laughs, funny situations but also stories from which the drama emerges.All screenings take place in the Salle Camille Blanc of the Grimaldi Forum, admission for the public is free and subject to availability.
