The 2021 Venice Film Festival runs from September 1-11 and is considered one of the world’s oldest award ceremonies and one of the “Big Five” events.
The star is known for portraying dastardly characters and she recently said she would love to play a Disney villain.
However, the actress would like to make any potential character a little “kinder” if they appeared in a movie from the legendary studio.

She told Variety, “It’s scarier when you make them a little more lovable and attractive and more manipulative instead of doing it like a classic villain.”
The judging panel for this year’s festival is led by Parasite director Bong Joon Ho, who said he was “honored to be included in its fine cinematic tradition.”
“As president of the jury — and above all as a perpetual cinephile — I am ready to admire and applaud all the great films selected by the festival. I am filled with genuine hope and excitement.
The jury is also made up of director Saverio Costanzo, actress Virginie Efira, star Cynthia Erivo, actress Sarah Gadon, documentary filmmaker Alexander Nanau and director Chloé Zhao.
This year’s festival also invited two Afghan filmmakers, Sahraa Karimi and Sahra Mani, to discuss the Taliban takeover of the country, with “special attention to the situation of filmmakers and artists”, during a panel which will take place on September 4th.

The theme of the panel will be “the plight of Afghan filmmakers and artists in general, the need to create humanitarian corridors and the guarantee of granting political refugee status, as well as the concern for their future and the need to provide for their accommodation once they arrive in Europe.
Oscar-winning Italian director Roberto Benigni, who helmed the acclaimed film Life Is Beautiful, will also receive the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement.
In a statement, he said: “My heart is full of joy and gratitude. It is a huge honor to receive such significant recognition for my work from the Venice International Film Festival.’
This year’s festival also saw the big return of its star-studded red carpet premieres, after last year’s event was drastically reduced due to the Covid pandemic.
