The article focuses on the Venice Film Festival to be held at Venice, Italy. This year more American accents are expected at the festival. Marco Muller, the film festival's new artistic director, has signaled his desire for a strong U.S. showing at the upcoming 61st edition. He has appointed former Pandora Cinema executive Eleonora Granata to act as representative of the event in the U.S., a long-vacant position. Granata was among the first people Muller called when he was appointed in early March. Aside from scouting for the U.S. films for Muller, Granata will serve as a conduit between both U.S. majors and indies and the festival.
