Venice Fest sets dates

Barbera to helm next 2 editions

ROME — Dates have been set for the next two editions of the Venice Intl. Film Festival. The 57th edition of Italy’s premier film event will take place Aug. 30-Sept. 9 on the Lido di Venezia, while the 58th go-around will unspool Aug. 29-Sept. 8, 2001. Fest director Alberto Barbera, who took up the reins last year, will remain at the helm for both editions.

The dates were decided at a meeting Friday of the administrative board of the Biennale, the arts council that controls the film fest and other annual arts events.

Also approved was the appointment of seasoned management expert Massimo Coda as coordinator general of the Biennale. Coda’s responsibility will be to help shepherd the bureaucratic streamlining and restructuring process entailed in the Biennale’s partial privatization, which began in recent years but has been slow to manifest many concrete changes.

“In the past few days, the Biennale has approved the new plan for its reorganization and for the exploitation of its human resources,” said Biennale president Paolo Baratta. “Among Coda’s principal duties will be that of carrying out this plan, contributing in this way to the realization of the reform process.”
