Random musings on all things cinematical, and otherwise, by Joe Leydon.
Question: Can someone explain the reasoning behind showing a film like Hollywoodland at the Venice Film Festival? It is already showing here in the U.S., so what is the advantage of having it at a festival so close to its opening? There's not much time to generate a buzz (at least not here).
Probaby for the same reason some U.S.-made movies open at the Cannes Film Festival after they've opened here: To stimulate buzz in overseas markets.
