De Hadeln reappointed
Moritz De Hadeln has been confirmed as the artistic director of the Venice Film Festival. His was a last-minute appointment by an increasingly desperate Venice Biennale board in March 2002.
Franco Bernabe, the Biennale president confirmed that Moritz De Hadeln will be in charge of the 60th edition scheduled to run from 27 August to 6 September 2003 but did not comment on any long-term commitments.
De Hadeln had said that he would appreciate continuity and did not want to "warm the seat" for his successsor.
The first novelty of the 60th Mostra is that it will end on a Saturday and not the traditional Sunday.
