Programs to cover celebs, filmmakers on Lido

The Venice Film Festival will get international TV coverage from the Sundance Channel, which will cover the event for the first time, offering a series of seven programs.

Sundance Presents the Venice Film Festival programming will include red-carpet coverage and one-on-one interviews with actors and filmmakers.

Five 30-minute episodes and two hourlong specials will focus on films screening at the fest and spotlights on Italian talent including Sophia Loren, Franco Zeffirelli and Roberto Benigni.

Some of the pics and talent headed for Venice likely to draw attention from Sundance Channel include George Clooney with “The Ides of March”; Steven Soderbergh’s “Contagion,” with Matt Damon and Jude Law; Madonna’s “W.E.”; and Al Pacino, who will receive a special award.

Produced by Sundance Channel Global and 3DD Prods., the Venice coverage complements Sundance Channel’s reporting from Cannes and Sundance.

“We look forward to bringing all the excitement of this year’s Venice Film Festival to Sundance Channel’s audiences around the world,” said Harold Gronenthal, senior VP-general manager, AMC/Sundance Channel Global. “We’re committed to showcasing the most important festivals across the globe and supporting the growth of independent film.”
