Venice Film Festival In and Out of Competition Films Announced


George Clooney's 'The Ides of March' would open the in-competition event while Whit Stillman's 'Damsels in Distress' will close the festival.

Organizers of Venice Film Festival have announced the movies that would take part at the 68th year. All 22 movies competing for the Golden Lion, including George Clooney's "The Ides of March" and Roman Polanski's "Carnage", are world premieres.

Also eying the prize are films by American directors like Ami Canaan Maan, Abel Ferrara and Todd Solondz. There are 21 movies in competition so far but another one would be unveiled during the festival, as has become a tradition from artistic director Marco Mueller.

Meanwhile, Madonna's "W.E.", Al Pacino's "Wilde Salome", Steve Soderbergh's "Contagion" and Whit Stillman's in are found among the out-of-competition films. Stillman's first film since 1998 would close the competition and the festival altogether.

This year's event is held from August 31 to September 10. This year's edition of the festival will also take place at Palazzo del Cinema venue, which has been under construction for the previous three editions.

Complete line-up can be found on the festival's official site.
