Présumé coupable by Vincent Garenq, Toutes nos envies by Philippe Lioret, and Fleur by Ye Lou will be presented at this year’s Venice Days, to be held August 31 through September 10, 2011.
The French selection at the event also includes Café de Flore by Jean-Marc Vallée (co-produced with Quebec), Another Silence by Santiago Amigorena (co-produced with Argentina and Canada), Historias by Julia Murat, (co-produced with Brazil), Io sono li by Andrea Segre (co-produced with Italy), and Hiver dernier by John Shank (co-produced with Belgium).
The documentary section features Crazy Horse by the American director Fred Wiseman and Edut, an Israeli docudrama by Shlomi Elkabetz.
The Venice Days festival is not competitive, although the Europa Cinemas Label will be presented at the event, with the winning film benefiting from promotion and screenings at theaters in the Europa Cinemas network.
Venice Days will also feature a screening of Les Neiges du Kilimandjaro (The Snows of Kilimanjaro) by Robert Guédigian, which was screened at this year’s Cannes Film Festival at the Un Certain Regard sidebar and has now been selected as one of three finalists for the Lux Prize awarded by the European parliament
