Venice sets 3D jury

Japan's Takashi Shimizu leads panel

VENICE — Japanese helmer Takashi Shimizu, best known for the “Ju-On” horror series and its English-language remake “The Grudge,” will head the jury of the Venice Film Festival’s Persol 3D award.

Shimizu will also be on the Lido with his “Shock Labyrinth 3D,” which will world preem out of competition.

Village Voice senior film critic Jim Hoberman and Italian experimental stereoscopic specialist David Zamagni round out the jury.

They will pick “the most creative” among 18 3D titles released in Italy over the past 12 months — including “Avatar,” “Alice in Wonderland” and “Toy Story 3D” — plus Hong Kong directorial duo Oxide and Danny Pang’s “The Child’s Eye,” which world preems in Venice.

Venice established the Persol 3D award last year in tandem with Italo sunglasses maker Persol.

Fest starts Wednesday and closes Sept. 11.
