Actor/director/producer Robert De Niro posed for photographers at the Taormina Film Fest 2010 photo call on Sunday, June 13th, 2010 in Taormina, Italy. He posed alongside Deborah Young, who is in her fourth year as the festivals artistic director.
De Niro will host a master class today and will be on hand for a morning screening of his directorial effort “The Good Shepherd.”
“Robert De Niro is really a great fit for a festival like Taormina,” says Young, who was recently given a new mandate to stay at Taormina’s helm through at least the 2011 festival. “Because of ‘The Godfather’ and his Italian heritage, he is identified with Sicily, and we’re pleased and honored he will be able to make it this year.”
The international icon is set to receive one of the five Taormina Arte awards given at the Sicilian festival. Another one of our favorites, Colin Firth will also return home with one!
