Venice Film Festival to Screen 10 Rare Films From Archive in Special Retrospective

Venice Film Festival to Screen 10 Rare Films From Archive in Special Retrospective 

To honor the 80th anniversary of the first Venice festival, organizers will restore, screen and make available for distribution 10 rare prints from the festival’s giant archives.

ROME – The Venice Film Festival said Tuesday it would select 10 rare films from its archives to form the year’s retrospective in a special nod to the 80th anniversary of the festival’s inaugural edition.

 

Normally, the festival’s retrospective focuses on a specific director or genre. But the festival said it had selected the ten films in this year’s retrospective based purely on rarity: many of them are the only existing copies of films, or copies of earlier versions of films that differ from the versions later released on cinemas.
