Venice 2019 - Venice Classicsby keithsim | last updated - 3 weeks ago
Director and screenwriter Costanza Quatriglio (https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0702997/) and a jury of film students will face the difficult task of awarding prizes to the Best Restored Film and the Best Documentary About Cinema. Not sure what the criteria are for Best Restoration (did Cronenberg's '96 Crash (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0115964/) really need a tune-up?) but these are all worthy of care and attention. Other Venice sections: In Competition (https://www.imdb.com/list/ls048890799/) , Out of Competition - Fiction, Non-Fiction and Special Screenings (https://www.imdb.com/list/ls090367749/), Orizzonti (https://www.imdb.com/list/ls090336956/), Best Documentary about Cinema (https://www.imdb.com/list/ls090367465/)
