Sophia Loren - Sophia Loren To Be Feted At Afi Film Festival

Italian actress Sophia Loren will be honoured by the American Film Institute (Afi) at its annual festival in November (14).

A special tribute will be paid to the movie icon during an evening celebration on 12 September (14) which will include a screening of her movie Marriage Italian Style. The 1964 comedy was restored earlier this year (14) 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 honour 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 (14) in Los Angeles.
