Venice film fest to honor Italian director Francesco Rosi

11 May 2012, Friday /AP
The Venice Film Festival will honor Italian director/screenwriter Francesco Rosi with a Golden Lion award for lifetime achievement.

Film festival director Alberto Barbera said in a statement on Thursday that Rosi “has left an indelible mark on the history of Italian filmmaking.” The festival called Rosi, 89, an innovator of socially committed Italian filmmaking. It cited “Hands over the City,” which won the Golden Lion at Venice in 1963; “The Mattei Affair,” which took the Palme d’Or at Cannes in 1972; and “Salvatore Giuliano,” Silver Bear-winner in Berlin in 1961. Rosi will receive the honor on Aug. 31 during the Venice festival, which runs from Aug. 29-Sept. 8.
