Young ties Ribbons to Taormina

Prestigious Italian awards return to Sicilian event

ROME — Italy’s Silver Ribbon film nods have resumed their link with the Taormina Film Festival, in a profile-boosting move for the Sicilian fest being reshaped by new artistic topper Deborah Young.

The 61st edition of the country’s oldest movie prizes will hold a gala televised by pubcaster RAI in Taormina’s Greek Theater on June 23, according to Italy’s SNGGI film journalists’ union, which runs the nods.

Ribbons will be handed out a day after the end of the fest, which runs June 16-22. Nominations will be announced in Rome on April 14.

The Ribbons relocated from Taormina to Rome in 2005, after a spat with former fest topper Felice Laudadio.

Young, a longtime Variety film reviewer, took up her new role late last month.
