Europa Cinemas will return to Venice

Further supporting its ongoing campaign to promote European films, Europa Cinemas will return once again to this year’s Giornate degli Autori/Venice Days section of the Venice Film Festival, awarding its Label prize to the best European film in the Giornate degli Autori/Venice Days section (August 28 to September 6). Reflecting the strength of European cinema, ten films in this year’s Giornate selection are from Europe, an unusually high percentage.

This marks the fifth year that the Europa Cinemas Label will be awarded at Venice, and complements the Labels awarded at the Panorama section in Berlin, the Quinzaine des Réalisateurs in Cannes and Karlovy Vary.

Previous winners of the Label are enjoying successful openings around Europe, buoyed by the invaluable support of extended theatrical exposure and additional promotion from the Europa Cinemas network.

Last year’s Venice winner - Andrzej Jakimowski’s TRICKS – has had great success in its native Poland and Holland, and, encouraged by Europa Cinemas’ support, there are openings planned this Autumn and early next year in Belgium (BFD), France (KMBO), Switzerland (Xenix), Germany (Kool Filmdistribution), UK (New Wave). Norway (Arthaus) and Spain (Sherlock Films). Bouli Lanners’ Cannes winner ELDORADO has had strong openings in Belgium and France.

A jury of four Europa Cinemas exhibitors will award the Label at Venice: Ana Christina Santos (DCA, Dundee/UK); Mario Lorini (Garibaldi, Poggibonsi/Italy); Fredrik Jönsson (Folkets Bio, Lund/Sweden) and Alexander Syllaba (Cinema Paradiso, St. Pölten/Austria).
