Earlier this week, the Toronto International Film Festival unveiled part of its 2013 line-up, and there were plenty of must-see movies. But the Venice Film Festival, which begins a week earlier, has countered with an equally impressive array of picture. While there’s the inevitable cross-over like Venice opener Gravity playing at TIFF along with Philomena, Under the Skin, Parkland, Joe, and many more, the Venice exclusives (at this point) make me want to book a Transatlantic ticket. The fest will play host to the world debuts of Terry Gilliam’s The Zero Theorem, Errol Morris’ Donald Rumsfeld documentary The Known Unknown, Steven Knight’s Locke (starring Tom Hardy and shot in one take), and more. Also set for the festival is Hayao Miyazaki’s new movie, The Wind Rises as well as Lee Sang-Il’s Japanese remake of Unforgiven. Last year, most of the movies in Venice eventually ended up in TIFF’s line-up, and since I’ll be going to the latter, I hope most of these movies find their way to Toronto this September.
Hit the jump for the full line-up. The 2013 Venice Film Festival runs from August 28 – September 7th.
