Italian actress Claudia Cardinale will be the guest host of Venezia Classici, the program devoted to classic film restorations, the rediscovery of neglected or underrated films, and to documentaries about cinema, at the 70th Venice International Film Festival, running August 28 through September 7. This year's program includes Roberto Rossellini's "Paisan," Jean Renoir's "La bete humaine" and a Satyajit Ray program.

Cardinale will attend the screening of Luchino Visconti's 1965 film, "Vaghe stelle dell’Orsa," which was awarded the Golden Lion at the 30th Venice International Film Festival -- and starred Cardinale. It is restored by Sony Pictures Entertainment. 

The program opens with William Friedkin's "Sorcerer" (1977), the director's remake of Henri-Georges Clouzot's "The Wages of Fear," which endured a troubled production and lackluster opening but is now widely viewed as a misunderstood masterpiece. It is restored for the occasion by Warner Bros.

Additionally, the Venice festival is launching its first-ever online competition, inviting the public to vote for the film of the decade from the "Venice Days" sidebar. 50 films have been selected from the program's last 10 years, and audiences can vote on the best one.
