Terence Blanchard 

World renowned Oscar nominated and six-time Grammy-winning composer, trumpeter and jazz musician Terence Blanchard, composer of the original scores for a wide range of films by Spike Lee including most recently Da 5 Bloods which was released by Netflix this summer, is the recipient of the Campari Passion for Film Award of the 77th Venice International Film Festival (September 2 – 12, 2020).

The award, instituted two years ago at the 75th Venice Film Festival, seeks to highlight the remarkable contribution given by the director’s closest collaborators to the fulfillment of the artistic project that each film represents. Passion for Film attributes this award to these professional figures (two years ago the prize was awarded to American film editor Bob Murawski, last year to the Italian cinematographer Luca Bigazzi), who are more than just craftsmen: they are artists and co-authors of the films to which they offer the gift of their unparalleled talent.

The ceremony for the award to Terence Blanchard took place on Monday September 7th at 10:00 pm in the Sala Grande (Palazzo del Cinema) before the screening Out of Competition of One Night in Miami (Usa, 100’) by Regina King with Kingsley Ben-Adir, Eli Goree, Aldis Hodge, Leslie Odom Jr, featuring Terence Blanchard’s score.
