With the unveiling of the Venice lineup, we now know a bit more about what to expect from the next wave of announcements. Presumably, most of the competition films will find their way to Toronto, including new work by Claire Denis, Jacques Rivette, Fatih Akin, and Patrice Chereau. The out of competition lineup also includes interesting names like Fruit Chan, Abel Ferrara, Joe Dante, and Oliver Stone (?). With a total of 71 world premieres, Venice is also spotlighting a lot of names that are new to me. Any recommendations?
A couple other questions:
- Horizons Events includes new films by Herzog, Sokurov, and Wiseman. I assume these are shorts?
- With only six weeks left, does anyone care to predict which Cannes/Venice title(s) won't be at TIFF?
UPDATE: Well that didn't take long. TIFF has announced eight more films, including the Akin and Dante. Also, films by Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Jason Reitman.
