The 16th edition of the festival created and directed by Ezio Greggio will take place with a rich program of events will include the projection of all movies in competition.
The award ceremony will be held at the Salle Prince Pierre on Sunday March 9th with numerous international guests, shows and exhibitions by famous artists and awards dedicated to the great protagonists of international comedy and cinema.
The festival’s movie projections will be divided in two main sections:
Official Selection: This represents the festival’s main screening session, with the projection of all movies in competition;
Gala Screenings: The section will present a limited number of films out of competition selected from the best comedy productions of the year. Films, which have already been presented in other festivals, can be selected for the competition as long as they have not won official awards in festivals with a similar scope as the Monte-Carlo Film Festival.
During his annual address to the press, National Council President Stéphane Valeri was optimistic for 2022, saying "there are reasons to hope that we can get back to a quasi-normal life.”
Nice Côte d’Azur airport ended 2021 with over 6.5 million passengers passing through, higher than expected and fuelled mainly by a strong summer season and the return of long-haul flights.
It is expected to be another mild, sunny weekend at the region’s ski resorts with plenty of standing snow, while Valberg will be hosting a Monte-Carlo Rallye event on Friday.
The celebration of Sainte Devote, Monaco’s Patron Saint, will be held next week, and again this year the Principality is taking adapted measures to ensure the health and safety of all who wish to participate.
