As Venice film festival rolls around, notable absences
As the 69th Venice International Film Festival started last night, the main focus this year will not only be on the winners.

The replacement of Marco Mueller with Alberto Barbera as the oldest film festival's new artistic director has gained attention around the world. Many are eyeing the changes brought by this replacement.

Some industry insiders in China, along with the media, have attributed the absence of Chinese films competing in the festival to Mueller's departure, while others are citing it as a reflection of the domestic film industry.
