NEWS: Venice Film Festival 2023: Michael Mann, Sofia Coppola, and David Fincher are entered in official competition

The official competition of the 80th Venice Film Festival (August 30 – September 9), consisting of 23 films, will see the great presence of American cinema (new works by Michael Mann, Sofia Coppola, Ava DuVernay, Bradley Cooper and David Fincher), Italian (Eduardo de Angelis, Pietro Castelletto, Saverio Costanzo, Gior Mateo Deletio) be the Chilean Pablo Larraín with number and Mexican Michel Franco with an English-language production as memory). The abundance of European films (15) contrasts with the meager Asian representation (only Evil does not existfrom Japanese Ryûsuke Hamaguchi).

Another aspect of the schedule that is sure to generate some controversy is the selection of new works by filmmakers in legal troubles such as France’s Luc Besson (in competition with Dogman), Woody Allen and Roman Polanski, the latter two out of competition.

Specifically, the Out of Competition section includes several well-known authors, in addition to Allen and Polanski: JA Bayona, Wes Anderson, Quentin Duboeux, William Friedkin, Cedric Kahn, Harmony Korine, Richard Linklater, Liliana Cavani, and Frederic Wiseman.

Argentine cinema will have a minimal involvement with kidnappingby Daniela Goggi, in the Horizonte Extra section (It has already been announced for the Toronto Festival) and Santiago Miter as a member of the official jury.

Besides the huge number of American stars who star in many selected films, if the union strike of SAG-AFTRA representatives is not lifted before the end of August, none of them will participate in the promotion, so the red carpet will be curtailed for the participation of directors and directors.
