Valeria Bruni-Tedeschi

Actress and director, France/Italy

Valeria Bruni-Tedeschi has more than 85 films in her filmography, which earned her some 30 nominations during her 30-year career and a César for most promising actress in 1994 for Les gens normaux n’ont rien d’exceptionnel by Laurence Ferreira Barbosa. Close to Noémie Lvovsky also spotted on the Slope of Fame, they have collaborated on more than ten projects together since 1990 including Les Jours venus, Actrices, Faut que ça danse and Oublie-Moi. The transalpine also found beautiful roles in her native country, with Marco Bellocchio, Mimmo Calopresti, Roberto Andò or Gabriele Muccino. She went behind the camera in 2003 with Il est plus facile pour un chameau… and her last production Les Estivants which was part of the official selection of the Venice Mostra in 2018 before being screened at Les Arcs in December.

She came to present her documentary Une jeune fille de 90 ans in 2016 and was a guest of honour of the Festival in 2018, and finally the French-Italian actress and director came to sign her star last winter at Les Arcs!
