Venice Classics section: Giuliano Montaldo President of the Jury of film students

Film director Giuliano Montaldo (Sacco & Vanzetti, And Agnes Chose to Die, The Gold Rimmed Glasses) will chair the Jury of film students which, at the 71st Venice Film Festival (27 August – 6 September 2014), will award the VENICE CLASSICS AWARD for BEST RESTORED FILM and the VENICE CLASSICS AWARD for BEST DOCUMENTARY ON CINEMA. The students of the jury, selected from various Italian universities, are 28 graduating students in the History of Cinema, recommended by the professors of 13 Arts, Music and Performing Arts Departments (DAMS) and from the University of Ca’ Foscari in Venice. This is the second year in which these prizes are being awarded. 
Once again this year the Biennale di Venezia will participate in Venice Classics with the Collections from its Historic Archives of the Contemporary Arts (ASAC), which continues in its effort to cultivate its heritage. In particular, the 71st Venice Film Festival will feature a screening of Marco Bellocchio’s masterpiece La Cina è vicina (China is Near), winner of the Special Jury Prize at the 1967 Venice International Film Festival, restored by Sony Pictures Entertainment in collaboration with the Cineteca di Bologna, on the basis of a valuable period copy preserved at the ASAC.
