Venice film panel to reward best 3-D feature
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: With the Venice Film Festival prepping to open tomorrow with the world premiere of Darren Aronofsky’s “Black Swan,” organizers have announced a continued commitment to 3-D technology, bridging the gap between classic and modern cinema.
Takashi Shimizu (“Ju-on,” “The Grudge”) heads the festival’s jury panel, which will select the best 3-D film offering. Shimizu will be joined by Village Voice film critic Jim Hoberman and stereoscopic specialist David Zamagni.
Some of the films in contention for Venice’s 3-D award, presented in partnership with Persol 3-D, include James Cameron’s “Avatar,” Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland,” and Pixar’s brilliant “Toy Story 3.”
We’ll have plenty more on Venice once the festival kicks off on Wednesday. It runs Sept. 1-11. For more information, visit http://www.labiennale.org/en/cinema.
