'The Reluctant Fundamentalist'
The Venice International Film Festival's Venice Days kicks off its ninth edition with "Women's Tales," featuring four short films by young female directors: Zoe Cassavetes, Lucrecia Martel, Giada Colagrande and Massy Tadjedin. Venice Day's three-day showcase, intended to support female filmmakers, will take place on the Lido with creative partner Miu Miu.

The directors will participate in a Q & A about women's creativity in film on August 31 and September 1 (11:30am) at the Hotel Excelsior's Sala Tropicana. They will be joined by filmmakers Liliana Cavani, Mira Nair and last year's Best Foreign Language Film Oscar-winner Susanne Bier ("In A Better World"). Natalia Aspesi and Luciana Castellina will moderate the events.

Nair's "The Reluctant Fundamentalist" has been acquired by Italian distrib Eagle Pictures prior to its premiere as the opening night film at Venice (August 29).
