Vienna fest finds ‘Lost’ for opener

Helmer Coppola to attend

COLOGNE — The Vienna Film Festival, opening Friday, will kick off with Sofia Coppola’s “Lost in Translation,” with the helmer attending.

The event, traditionally a platform for niche cinema, is marking its 41st year and will show some 150 films during a 12-day run.

Schedule includes world preems for Chinese helmer Zhu Chuanming’s “Shang shanm,” “Handbikemovie” by Austria’s Martin Bruch and docs by Jonathan Demme and Abel Ferrara.

Retrospective sections are focusing on Japanese independent cinema of the ’60s and ’70s, helmer Vincent Gallo and Munich jazz and avant garde record label ECM.

Two special tribute sidebars are reserved for late U.S. political docu director Emile de Antonio and for Warren Beatty.
