The Festival jury will be chaired by Swedish director Ruben Östlund, who won the previous edition, and as many as three Italian filmmakers will be in the competition, Bellocchio, Moretti and Rohrwacher.

The Marché du Film, on the other hand, will take place May 15-24 with its rich program of events entitled this year “ImpAct” whose focus is diversity, inclusion, representation and sustainability in the film industry.

Variety Distribution will participate in the Marchè du Film by presenting at Booth G4- Riviera Space the new titles in its catalog, “Emanuelle Do Ut Des,” “Anthropophagus II,” The Slaughter and “Tenebra,” along with its rich and varied catalog of films.
