Rock star Quentin Tarantino to head Venice festival jury
According to AP, Quentin Tarantino will head the jury of this year’s Venice Film Festival, which regularly awards the Golden Lion. The 67th “Biennale” will take place the first week of September. Festival Director Marco Mueller is quoted as saying Quentin was “perhaps the only American auteur to be adored world wide like a rock star”. Well we couldn’t agree more, and congrats to Quentin for heading such a prestigious festival, in the country that has brought forth so many great filmmakers that he himself and cineasts worldwide adore and cherish.
