Venice Film Fest 2010: Competition Lineup

Rome, July 29, 2010—The Venice Film Festival has unveiled its lineup of 79 world premieres, comprising an ample American contingent, alongside robust European and Asian representations, making for a carefully calibrated mix of classic auteur and genre fare, as well as more esoteric offerings.

New works by Julian Schnabel, Sofia Coppola, Vincent Gallo, Monte Hellman and Kelly Reichardt will launch from the Lido and vie for the Golden Lion with fresh fare from European heavyweights, including Abdellatif Kechiche, Francois Ozon, and Tom Tykwer, and well-established Asian helmers Tsui Hark, Takashi Miike and Tran Anh Hung, among other entries.
