Among the "highlights" of the stars who have already confirmed their presence at the festival, there are the rising actress Annabelle Belmondo (daughter of Jean-Paul Belmondo) and other exponents of Italian cinema and entertainment, including Violante Placido, Francesco Pannofino, Francesco Montanari, Renato Carpentieri, Eleonora Giovanardi and Lodo Guenzi. The films in competition will feature many well-known faces of American cinema including Oded Fehr ("The Mummy", "Star Trek Discovery"), Corey Johnson ("Morbius" "X-Men"), Alexandra Gilbreath ("Becoming Elisabeth") , which will be in Ferrara during the days of the Festival.
