VENICE LINEUP ANNOUNCED: ARRIVAL, NOCTURNAL ANIMALS, VOYAGE OF TIME IN THE MIX


The Venice Film Festival has revealed its full slate of screeners for its 73rd edition, following the announcement of the Venice Days selection. Major American titles such as Denis Villeneuve's Arrival, Tom Ford's Nocturnal Animals (both starring Amy Adams), Damien Chazelle's fest opener La La Land, Pablo Larrain's Jackie Kennedy biopic Jackie - his second major festival competition entry of the year, following Neruda, which showed at Cannes - and Terrence Malick's IMAX documentary Voyage of Time make the cut. Alongside those buzzed-about features are plenty from esteemed international auteurs such as Andrey Konchalovskiy with Paradise, Wim Wenders with The Beautiful Days of Aranjuez, and Lav Diaz with The Woman Who Left - another director debuting a second film in competition at a top fest, following his 8-hour Berlin prize winner A Lullaby to the Sorrowful Mystery. Plenty of promise in the other strands too! Check it all out below:
