This year’s line-up for the 68th Venice Film Festival, taking place between 31st August and 10th September, has been announced by the festival’s official website, and as expected, it’s more than a little bit fantastic, with a brilliant line-up of films set to screen in Italy.
The list, as you can imagine, is a bit of a long one, so I’ve highlighted some of the hottest tipped to look out for beneath. Playing in competition will be:
Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, directed by Tomas Alfredson Wuthering Heights, directed by Andrea Arnold Texas Killing Fields, directed by Ami Canaan Mann The Ides of March, directed by George Clooney Quando La Notte, directed by Cristina Comencini Terraferma, »

Hot on the heels of the release of a massive batch of films  that will appear in the Toronto Film Festival, we've got the main lineup for the 68th Venice Film Festival, which runs from August 31 to September 10. We knew that George Clooney's The Ides of March would open the fest (the trailer premiered last night and you can see it here ) and this list confirms quite a few films that we imagined would be playing Venice. Our very much anticipated spy thriller Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy from Let the Right One In director Tomas Alfredson is on the list, as is Roman Polanski's tense closed-room drama Carnage, starring Kate Winslet, Jodie Foster, John C. Reilly and Christoph Waltz. And there is Alps, the second film from polarizing Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos, whose film Dogtooth shocked, entertained and angered festival audiences in 2009. The full list is after the break. »

The line-up for the 2011 Venice Film Festival was unveiled a little earlier today and this year’s edition looks particularly stacked on the English-language side of things with a large number of dramatic outputs from the U.K. and U.S.
Dozens and dozens of high-intrigue fare are set to be premiering over the two week event which kicks off proceedings on August 31st with the George Clooney directed political thriller The Ides of March as an in-competition film. A trailer was released last night and you can see it Here.
The other big headliners include;
Working Title’s attempt to bring the classic John Le Carre novel Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy to the big screen for the first time (though there was an amazing 70′s t.v. series with Alec Guinness that this film will need to go to some quality to beat) has been on our radar every »

Last week, right in the middle of the Cannes Film Festival, when half the world's film journalists were taking in the new Terrence Malick and debating the Festival's decision to throw Lars von Trier under the bus, Variety's Nick Vivarelli broke the news that the Venice Film Festival was suddenly all but waving its hands and calling out, "You think you're having fun now…" Vivarelli reported that Roman Polanski's Carnage (an adaptation of Yasmina Reza's award-winning play, God of Carnage, with Jodie Foster, Kate Winslet, Christoph Waltz and John C Reilly), David Cronenberg's A Dangerous Method (based on Christopher Hampton's play, The Talking Cure, with Viggo Mortensen as Freud, Michael Fassbender as Jung and Keira Knightley as Sabina Spielrein), Aleksandr Sokurov's Faust (the fourth and final installment in his Men of Power series), Philippe Garrel's A Burning Hot Summer (Un été brûlant, "a remake »

Hollywoodnews.com: Titles scheduled to screen at the 68tht Annual Venice Film Festival reached the Web this afternoon, and are sure to send film geeks (and Oscar trackers) into a frenzy.
David Cronenberg‘s “A Dangerous Method” and Roman Polanski’s “Carnage” are two of the festival’s biggest gets, with each boasting ensembles that include the likes of Jodie Foster, Viggo Mortensen, Kate Winslet, Michael Fassbender, Keira Knightley, Christoph Waltz and John C. Reilly.

While other Hollywood Oscar contenders are in play, from Steven Soderbergh’s “Contagion” and “Haywire” to Steven Spielberg’s “War Horse.”
