Fest will fete Denis Villeneuve, Samuel Fuller
The 46th Karlovy Vary Film Festival has announced tributes to Canadian filmmaker Denis Villeneuve and helmer Samuel Fuller plus a spotlight on young Greek directors.
Villeneuve will attend to present a complete retrospective of his films, including Oscar-nommed “Incendies.”
The fest will present 10 films by Fuller, who influenced a generation of filmmakers including Martin Scorsese and Quentin Tarantino with intense, controversial films such as “White Dog.”
Eight features will unspool in the Greek sidebar, including Oscar-nommed “Dogtooth.”
Running July 1-9, it’s the first year artistic director Karel Och will oversee the selection at the Czech Republic fest.
