Venice Film Festival adds more jury members


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Darren Aronofsky now knows who will be helping him hand out trophies at the Venice Film Festival in the fall.

Representatives for the fest confirmed on Friday that Todd Haynes, Andre Techine, Mario Martone and actress Alba Rohrwacher – all of whom have had films in Venice – will join the “Black Swan” helmer in judging competition.

THR notes that other jury members include Talking Heads frontman David Byrne and Finish visual artist Ejia-Liisa Ahtila. It is an eclectic group, and one that, we hope, will spread trophies to a wide range of films.

Last year, Quentin Tarantino was criticized for reportedly handling out prizes to filmmakers who had close personal ties to the “Pulp Fiction” director. How else can you explain a Venice win for the dreadful “Somewhere” by Sofia Coppola?

This year’s edition of the Venice festival will take place Aug. 31-Sept. 10.
