Join us at our June Writer’s Room to hear from Paolo Bertolin, South-East Asia and Pacific selector for the Venice Film Festival.
Paolo talks to producer Philippa Campbell about programming for Venice, the role of film festivals in an ever changing landscape, Asia & Pacific films in an international context and New Zealand films’ place in the Asia Pacific.
Running since 1932, Venice Film Festival is the oldest film festival in the world. It holds its place as one of the most prestigious A-list festivals and runs every year as part of the Venice Biennale.
Paolo has also worked for a number of other festivals, including Udine Far East Film Festival (Italy) and Visions du Reel (Switzerland) and has been a correspondent for Canne’s Critic’s week.
