Quentin Tarantino awarded with a career commemoration at Rome Film Festival

These days, the Italian capital is filled with Hollywood stars for the 16th edition of Rome Film Festival. The most awaited of which was 2 times Oscar winner, director Quentin Tarantino who was awarded a career commemoration recognition handed by the internationally acclaimed Italian director Dario Argento.

The occasion celebrated over 30 years of Tarantino’s successes including films like ‘Kill Bill’, ‘Pulp Fiction’, ‘Inglorious Bastards, ‘Django’ and his debut masterpiece ‘Reservoir Dogs’. Throughout his career, he was also awarded 2 Oscars for Best Original Screenplay in 1995 for ‘Pulp Fiction’ and in 2013 for ‘Django’; 4 Golden Globes, 2 BAFTAs, 3 David di Donatello and the ‘Palme D’Or’ at Cannes Film Festival.

After receiving his award, he spoke to the audience going through different topics, telling anecdotes, and retracing the highlights of his incredible career. Later, he also remembered the amazing work and genius of composer Ennio Morricone, who passed away in July 2020, affirming that “working with him was a dream. He was a real master, that’s all I can say”. Finally, Tarantino also revealed one of his biggest dreams, that is having the chance to shoot a film in Cinecittà (the core of Italian filmmaking) saying that “the next film could be a western spaghetti where anyone, Germans, Irish, Italians, everyone is speaking their own language without caring about being understood”.

In conclusion, the director addressed the crisis that affected the cinema because of the Covid-19 pandemic saying that it is impossible to know whether the industry is dead or not. He added that, in the cinema he owns, when it reopened, he had lots of people coming in, so much that he decided to add another theatre. He also stated that “maybe cinema in the future will become a niche space. It’s true that things are changing. I was lucky though that “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood'' came out just in time before the pandemic, like a bird that manages to get out of a window a few seconds before it closes."
