NEWS: 67th Venice International Film Festival

The 67th Venice International Film Festival, organised by La Biennale di Venezia, will run 1st to 11th September 2010 at Venice Lido.

The aim of the festival is to raise awareness and promote all the various aspects of international cinema in all its forms: as art, entertainment and as an industry, in a spirit of freedom and tolerance. The festival includes retrospectives and homages to major figures as a contribution towards raising awareness of the history of cinema.

There are 35 countries represented at this year’s event, with Italy unsurprisingly making up the bulk of screenings.

John Woo (pictured below) will receive the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement.
