Mueller named director of Rome film festival
ROME (AP) - Marco Mueller, the longest-running creative director of the Venice Film Festival, is moving to the Rome International Film Festival.
The Rome festival's president Paolo Ferrari announced the appointment Friday, saying Mueller was "esteemed in Italy and abroad."
Mueller, whose eight years at Venice were widely regarded as a success, was not confirmed to a third stint last year. He said in a statement he was looking forward to working at the Rome festival, "which wants to better meet the needs of those who make movies ... and those who see them."
The Rome Film Festival launched in 2006, resulting in a short-lived spat over cinematic pre-eminence. Venice, nonetheless, prevailed in terms of star power, world premieres and cinematic successes. Alberto Barbera is the new Venice director.
