75th Venice Film Festival: Restored Films Line-Up announced

Loud And Clear
some like it hot

The list of Restored Films that will be shown for the Venezia Classici section of this year’s Venice Film Festival has just been posted, and we couldn’t be happier.


The 75th Venice International Film Festival is approaching, and we can’t wait to find out which films Alberto Barbera (the festival’s Artistic Director) and Paolo Baratta (La Biennale‘s chairman) have chosen to show us at the Lido from August 29 to September 8.

And while we will have to wait a little longer for the whole festival programme to be released, exciting news are already starting to emerge on the Biennale website. The entire list of restored classic films that will be shown as part of the Venezia Classici section of the festival has been posted yesterday, and we were thrilled to read so many familiar titles.

The Jury of Cinema History Students, chaired by Italian director Salvatore Mereu (Pretty Butterflies, Three Steps Dancing) will award the Venezia Classici Award for this year’s Best Restored Film: the competition will be tough, as they will have to choose between classics such as Ermanno Olmi’s Il Posto (1961), Alain Resnais’ Last Year in Marienbad (1961), Kenji Mizoguchi’s Street of Shame (1956), Paolo and Vittorio Taviani’s The Night of the Shooting Stars (1982) and even crowdpleaser and worldwide sensation Some Like It Hot (1959) by Billy Wilder.
