ALEXANDRE DESPLAT TO CHAIR VENICE 2014 JURY


After Bernardo Bertolucci made a controversial choice at Venice 2013 and brought the Golden Lion home to his, and the festival's, home nation with the documentary Sacro GRA, the fest's organising committees have selected composer Alexandre Desplat to head up the jury this year. He'll be the first musician to serve as jury chair at Venice, which is widely regarded as the world's second most prestigious film festival after Cannes.
