US Films Jilted at Venice Film Festival

VENICE-FILM-FESTIVAL

The Venice film festival, which has been the launching pad for many Oscar winners, including “Brokeback Mountain, ” “The Hurt Locker, ” “Michael Clayton” and last year’s “Gravity” has a paucity of screenings this year from Hollywood. Gonzalez Inarritu’s “Birdman” is taking fire from films featuring Al Pacino and Peter Bogdanovich.

While the offerings are impressive, including “Three Hearts” with Catherine Deneuve, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Chiara Mastroanni, U.S. offerings are sparse with the festival focused on art films and cross genre films. The U.S. may have to look to locations other than Venice for grand premieres.
