|Jaeger-LeCoultre 70. Mostra|
From August 28th to September 7th, 2013 on the occasion of the 70th Venice International Film Festival organized by the Biennale di Venezia, one of my favorite watchmakers, Jaeger-LeCoultre will unveil its own dream cast of exceptional watchmaking creations and present its Jubilee collection.
As a loyal sponsor of the Venetian festival, Jaeger-LeCoultre will be actively involved in all the highlights of the event, adorning the stars with its finest creations and presenting a personalized Reverso watch to the winners of the Best Film (Leone d’Oro, the Golden Lion Award), the Best Actress and Best Actor of the year (Coppa Volpi Awards). The watches will feature a lacquered engraving depicting a lion, the symbol of Venice, handcrafted in accordance with the finest traditions, and bear the inscription “70. Mostra”.
For the third consecutive year Jaeger-LeCoultre renews its commitment to the charity initiative in support of the Emergency association and will hold an exclusive dinner with special guests paying tribute to the project “Jaeger-LeCoultre for Emergency, It's time to help Sierra Leone” on August 29th.
Last but not least, the master of Italian cinema Ettore Scola has been awarded the Jaeger-LeCoultre Glory to the Filmmaker 2013 prize, dedicated to a personality who has brought major innovation to contemporary cinema. The prize will be conferred to Ettore Scola at the awards ceremony which will take place on September 6th during the 70th Venice Film Festival. Following the conferral of the award in the Sala Grande, the festival will present the world premiere of the new film by Ettore Scola, Che strano chiamarsi Federico!, a tribute to Federico Fellini on the 20th anniversary of his death.
