MILAN —

The Venice Film Festival has announced that Oscar-winning director Bernardo Bertolucci will chair the jury for the 70th Venice Film Festival.

Bertolucci, 73, headed the jury previously in 1983, when the Golden Lion went to Jean-Luc Godard's `'First Name: Carmen," and he has premiered numerous films at the festival, starting with `'The Grim Reaper" in 1962 and more recently `'The Dreamers," in 2003.

Bertolucci's 1987 film `'The Last Emperor" won nine Oscars. The festival says it was the first and only Italian film to win the Academy Award for best director.

Bertolucci said in a statement Thursday that the festival will give him the opportunity to discover `'the most mysterious niches of filmmaking in the most mysterious countries of the world."

The festival will be held Aug. 28-Sept. 7.
