Venice Film Festival chronology

The 67th annual Venice International Film Festival held in Venice, Italy, took place from 1 to 11 September 2010.[1] American film director and screenwriter Quentin Tarantino was the head of the Jury.[2] The opening film of the festival was Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan,[3] and the closing film was Julie Taymor's The Tempest. John Woo was awarded the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement prior to the start of the Festival.[4]

The Golden Lion for the Best Film In Competition was awarded to Somewhere, directed by Sofia Coppola.[5] The Silver Lion Award for Best Director was given to Álex de la Iglesia, for A Sad Trumpet Ballad. In a break with tradition of limiting a film to receiving no more than one major award, the Special Jury Prize and the Best Actor (the Volpi Cup) went to the same film, Jerzy Skolimowski's Essential Killing. In the past, no one film had been given two major awards. Representing the jury, American director Quentin Tarantino appealed to Festival head Marco Müller to alter the rules. This rule change continues to be upheld for future editions of the Festival.[6][7]

Following the Festival, Italian film critic Paolo Mereghetti criticised the decisions that the jury made in awarding prizes, and singled out Tarantino, accusing him of favoritism. He denied the charge.[8][9]


The international juries of the 67th Venice International Film Festival were composed as follows:[10]

Main Competition (Venezia 67)[11]

Horizons (Orizzonti)[12]

  • Shirin Neshat, Iranian visual artist (film, video, photography) (President)
  • Raja Amari, Tunisian director and script writer
  • Lav Diaz, Filipino independent filmmaker
  • Alexander Horwath, director of the Austrian Filmmuseum, former director of Viennale
  • Pietro Marcello, Italian director

Official selection

In competition

The Leone d'oro (Golden Lion) award was won by Somewhere, directed by Sofia Coppola, a film based in part on Coppola's childhood as the daughter of acclaimed American director Francis Ford Coppola.[16] Quentin Tarantino, the president of the jury that awarded the prize, hailed the film saying, "it grew and grew in our hearts, in our minds, in our affections".[17] The jury's decision was unanimous. Upon receiving the award, Coppola paid credit to her father for "teaching me".[18] The Russian film Silent Souls and the Chilean film Post Mortem had been considered favourites for the award.[19]
