62nd Venice International Film Festival

The 62nd Venice International Film Festival opened on August 31, 2005 with Tsui Hark's "Seven Swords" and closed on September 10, 2005 with a screening of Peter Ho-sun Chan's musical "Perhaps Love". The lineups were announced by the festival director Marco Müller on July 28, 2005 in Rome. The digital films can compete in all categories for the first time of the festival history.

Asian filmmaking confirms its vitality, and with this year's most important works demonstrates that it has once again been capable of challenging the most intelligent spectacular effects from Hollywood. This inaugural event of the 62nd Festival will thus acquire the value of a special tribute to filmmaking from the Far East, which has been cause for such enthusiasm in Western film and culture.

Hayao Miyazaki, Japanese animated filmmaker and Stefania Sandrelli, Italian actress were awarded the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement.
