Italian actress Sophia Loren will be honored by the American Film Institute (AFI) at its annual festival in November.
A special tribute will be paid to the movie icon during an evening celebration on 12 September which will include a screening of her movie Marriage Italian Style. The 1964 comedy was restored earlier this year to mark its 50th anniversary.
AFI President Bob Gazzale says, “In a world where the daily obsession seems to be, ‘What’s next?’ Sophia Loren is a rare and welcome reminder that true talent is timeless… It is AFI’s honor to shine a proper light on all the gifts she’s given the world across the years.”
The festival runs from 6 to 13 November in Los Angeles.
