Celebrating its 72nd edition in 2015, Venice Film Festival will run from September 2 to 12, opening with Baltasar Kormakur's Everest and closing with Mr Six, directed by Hu Guan. The Official Competition films vie for the Golden Lion.
Seven films will also compete in the Film Critics' Week section, which this year marks its 30th year. To celebrate, Peter Mullan will be guest of honour and receive the Saturnia Prize – SIC 30 Special Award – after his film Orphans (which will also screen) was voted the best debut to ever be screened at the event.
Director Betrand Tavernier will receive a Lifetime Golden Leopard and Brian De Palma will receive the Jaeger-LeCoultre Glory to the Filmmaker 2015 Award.
