August 27, 2012 – It was announced today that Salma Hayek-Pinault will present the 2012 Gucci Award for Women in Cinema during a ceremony and private dinner to be hosted by Gucci Creative Director Frida Giannini on Friday, August 31st at the 69th Venice International Film Festival.  

The Award recognizes an outstanding artistic achievement by a woman in filmmaking. An Advisory Committee led by Venice International Film Festival Director Alberto Barbera has selected this year’s nominees from a range of disciplines including director, actor, producer, cinematographer, screenwriter, editor, and costume designer.
The 2012 nominees are: 
- Colleen Atwood: costume designer, SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN
- Nadine Labaki: director, WHERE DO WE GO NOW?
- Brit Marling: actor, ANOTHER EARTH
- Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy: director, SAVING FACE
- Thelma Schoonmaker: editor, HUGO

A jury led by Giannini will select the final recipient from this group of distinguished women. Giannini is joined on the jury by actress Zoë Saldana; director and screenwriter Paolo Sorrentino; Mary Schmidt Campbell, dean of New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts; and film journalist, curator and the Venice International Film Festival’s US Programmer Giulia D’Agnolo Vallan.
In honor of this occasion, Gucci will again make a grant of US$25,000 to the Maurice Kanbar Institute of Film and Television at NYU Tisch School of the Arts in the name of the Award recipient. In 2011, the inaugural Gucci Award for Women in Cinema was presented to Jessica Chastain for her acting work in THE TREE OF LIFE.
