The Eyes of Tammy Faye, starring Andrew Garfield and Jessica Chastain

The Eyes of Tammy Faye directed by Michael Showalter will open and Marvel Studios’ Eternals will close the sixteenth Rome Film Fest taking place October 14 – 24, 2021. Rome Film Fest will also celebrate Tim Burton and Quentin Tarantino with a Lifetime Achievement Award.

The Eyes of Tammy Faye, based on a true story, is a look at the extraordinary rise, fall and redemption of the televangelist Tammy Faye Bakker, portrayed by Jessica Chastain.

Eternals, the third film in Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe – directed by Chloé Zhao, stars Gemma Chan, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani, Lia McHugh, Brian Tyree Henry, Lauren Ridloff, Barry Keoghan, Don Lee, with Kit Harington and Salma Hayek, and Angelina Jolie.

Tim Burton said, “To receive this honor from the Rome Film Fest is very special for me. Fellini, Mario Bava, Dario Argento have all been major inspirations in my life and receiving it in Rome, a place I love, a city where you feel like you’re starring in your own film, is very emotional”.

Quentin Tarantino said: “There was a time in my life where I’d watch any Italian movie. And I spent the better part of my career making my version of those movies. So, to get a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Rome Film Festival, is fantastico!”.
