One of the greatest historical film, Ridley Scott’s Gladiator, was shown yesterday evening in Pula, Croatia on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of International Sound & Film Music Festival. The film was screened for the first time in the venue where it truly belongs – the Old Roman Amphitheatre, one of the largest and best-preserved amphitheaters in the world.
On the most beautiful stage in the world, Scott Millan’s incredible career in film sound was honored and he was awarded with the ISFMF Lifetime Achievement Award. Over the course of his career in feature film, Mr Millan has received nine Oscar® nominations – winning for Ron Howard’s Apollo 13, Ridley Scott’s Gladiator, Taylor Hackford’s Ray, and Paul Greengrass’s The Bourne Ultimatum. Among his myriad of honors, he was acknowledged by his peers and industry colleagues with the Cinema Audio Society’s highest accolade in 2013, the CAS Career Achievement Award. Mr Millan is also the recipient of four BAFTA Film Awards, six Emmy® Awards, three CAS Awards, one Satellite Award, and numerous other career tributes.
The event was truly a great thing for the film scene of the entire region, especially considering the fact that never before has an audiovisual professional with such a significant number of awards officially come to Croatia.
The host of the evening was Croatian famous singer-songwriter and actress Elis Lovrić.
The partners of the project are the City of Pula and the Public institution Pula Film Festival.
