LOCATION: Venice Fim Festival
For the seventieth anniversary of the Venice Film Festival, 70 renowned directors have been asked to make a short film: 70 – Future Reloaded
On the occasion of the 70th edition of the Venice International Film Festival, the Biennale has launched an extraordinary project called 70 – Future Reloaded: 70 filmmakers from around the world have been invited to create a short film lasting between 60 and 90 seconds to celebrate the anniversary. All short films will then be screened during this year’s Film Festival in Venice, which takes place at the Lido from 28 August to 7 September 2013.
Naturally, those taking part will be great directors, either established or young directors with great talent, who have participated at least once during the past two decades in one of the previous editions of the Venice Film Festival. Future Reloaded is both a collective tribute to the Festival (the first festival in the world to reach the milestone of 70 editions) and a reflection on the future of cinema, filtered through the personal sensitivity of each director.
The list of directors participating in the initiative is constantly being updated and you can see it on the Biennale site at this address. The list includes Bernardo Bertolucci, Paul Schrader, Shekhar Kapur, Abbas Kiarostami, Isabel Coixet and Walter Salles.
