Cate Blanchett wears face mask on red carpet at Venice Film Festival

Cate Blanchett wears face mask on red carpet at Venice Film Festival”

The Oscar victor urges for a safe reopening of cinema gatherings, and congratulates the effort and organization of the virtual festivals, also referencing the Cannes and Berlin Film Festivals, "I applaud the organizers of the festival for their inventiveness and resilience and collaboration", she also added, "I am here in support and solidarity with filmmakers who had to complete films under very challenging and hard circumstances".

Organizers of the Berlin International Film Festival announced last month that they would stop awarding separate acting prizes to men and women starting next year.

For example, instead of Best Actor and Best Actress, awards for Best Leading Performance and Best Supporting Performance will be given out without regards to gender.

Cate's stylist Elizabeth Stewart has revealed that she will "rewear some of her most cherished looks at this year's Venice Film Festival, like this Esteban Cortazar worn to tonight's Opening that was first worn to a premiere in 2015".

"I'm of a generation where the word "actress" was used always in a pejorative sense".

"Not as a political statement, but I've always referred to myself as an actor", she said. "And so I'm really happy to hear that about Berlin and I think it's pretty much inevitable that everybody will follow". So I claim the other space'.

According to Variety, when the Film Festival unveiled its official selection in late July, the 'unprecedented inclusion of eight female-directed titles within the 18-film roster was heralded as welcome progress for an event that has come under fire in recent years for scarce representation of female filmmakers'.

Cate was chosen to head the jury back in January, making her the third woman in four years to hold the role.

Insisting on boosting women directors in the ranks at festivals, she said, was actually "anti-feminist".
