Marco Muller - producer
Interview with the producer and director of the Venice film festival Marco Muller
by Federico Greco
Marco Muller film producer and, since 2004, director of the Venice International Film Festival, is interviewed about his experience as a producer.
In particular he talks about the start up of Downtown Pictures, a production house and wide-ranging audio-visual initiatives centre which was created to pay more attention to new film-makers and the new state of cinema and audio-visual works.
As he says in the interview, the idea was to give the possibility to directors to make films, financing projects in which other producers were not interested in. In this way particular projects, could find a space in the market. This was also possible thanks to the agreement with Rai Cinema.
