60th Venice Film Festival

At a press conference in Venice, where the 60th Venice Film Festival is taking place, the European Commissioner for Culture and Audiovisual Media, Viviane Reding, presented today the preliminary programme for the second CINEDAYS festival, which will take place from 10 to 24 October 2003. In 2002, this European film festival mobilised almost 50 television channels, hundreds of cinemas and film archives and allowed 100 000 young people to attend screenings of both modern and vintage European films or to work at school on the theme of education in the visual image. The official opening will take place in Brussels on 9 October, and the Italian Presidency will be organising the closing ceremony on 24 October in Rome.
