Rome [ENA] On 5 July 2017, actress Annette Bening was named as the Venice Film Festival jury president, the first female president since Catherine Deneuve in 2006. Bening received for 20th Century Women her 8th Golden Globe nomination. The Venice International Film Festival is organised by La Biennale di Venezia, and will be held on the Lido di Venezia from August 30th to September 9th, 2017.

The Festival is officially recognised by the FIAPF (International Federation of Film Producers Association). The edition of the international Venice Film Festival is directed by Alberto Barbera and organized by the Biennale chaired by Paolo Baratta. The goal of the Festival is to promote international cinema in all its forms as art, entertainment and as an industry, in a attitude of freedom and dialogue. The Festival also manages retrospectives and tributes to major figures as a contribution towards a better understanding of the history of cinema. The line-up includes the sections Venezia 74, Orizzonti, Out of Competition, Biennale College - Cinema, Venezia Classici, and Cinema nel Giardino.

The autonomous and parallel sections include the sections International Critics’ Week and the Giornate degli Autori-Venice Days. One of the three films, which will premiere, is Zhuibu (Manhunt) by Hong Kong director John Woo. Zhuibu will not be running for an award. A remake of a 1976 Japanese classic, the movie narrates of a Chinese man who has been framed for a murder in Japan and struggles to clear his name while he eludes a manhunt organized by police and is being attacked by mysterious killers.

The Venice Film Festival in 2010 presented John Woo with the prestigious Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement. Italian documentary L'Enigma di Jean Rouch a Torino - cronaca di un film raté (The Enigma of Jean Rouch in Turin) by Marco di Castri, Paolo Favaro and Daniele Pianciola focuses on the "laboratory of ideas" created by Rouch from 1984 through 1986 as he was preparing the 1988 film Enigma. Rouch, anthropologist and filmmaker, is regarded as one of the founders of a style of documentary filmmaking called cinéma-vérité. The documentary is recited by some of the original project's protagonists and will screen in competition in the Venice classics' documentary section.

L'Ordine delle Cose (The order of things) by Italian director Andrea Segre talks about Corrado, a policeman working for a task force deployed to control migrant flows. While coordinating a delicate mission in Libya, Corrado meets Swada, a young Somali woman who is trying to reach her husband in Finland. The movie will premiere in the special screening category.The Jury for the Venezia 74 Competition will award the following official prizes: Golden Lion for Best Film; Silver Lion - Grand Jury Prize; Silver Lion for Best Director; Coppa Volpi for Best Actor; Coppa Volpi for Best Actress; Award for Best Screenplay; the Special Jury Prize and “Marcello Mastroianni” Award for Best New Young Actor or Actress.
