On the occasion of its tenth edition, for the first time Venice Days has created its own international award for a film from the entire Official Selection. This prize joins the Europa Cinemas Label for best European film and the prizes awarded by FEDEORA (the Federation of Film Critics of Europe and the Mediterranean).
The award for the event film at Venice Days 2013 goes to:
Kill Your Darlings by John Krokidas
The jury motivated its decision with the following statement:
“The film is a work of highly creative filmmaking. Thanks to a rigorous choice of style and an original approach, it is sure to leave its mark on the new season in American film, one which reconciles the expectations of audiences, cinephiles, and the cultural legacy of the last century. With its spectacular performances, powerful score, and startling, sophisticated cinematography, the film became a genuine event at Venice 70.”

I first met Lizzie about 3 years ago on the set of her break out movie, “Martha Marcy May Marlene.” Even back then she had a quiet confidence that belied her 20 years, which very clearly set her apart from the bevvy of other beauties on set. Mix that with her Lauren Hutton like looks and we have the recipe for an intimidating star in the making. Cut to 2013 and I am over at at her apt in NYC where she was making her home made fresh mango tea (it was delicious, by the way!). This was her last day off before going into production on her new venture, which you shall read about in her interview so I won’t ruin it. She is still gorgeous, has a slew of movies under her belt, has played the hollywood game for a few years and figured out what works for her and what doesn’t and most importantly she has fallen madly in love with a very handsome young man!
Life seems pretty good in Lizzie land….
Who is Elizabeth Olsen?
A wannabe Martha Stewart trapped in 24-year-old’s body!
What did you want to be when you grew up?
An actress, a dancer and a singer so I could play opposite Frank Sinatra.
How did you get to be where you are?
Right place at the right time by way of a strong competitive nature. I had a complex about being the best since I was a little kid, which I thankfully said goodbye to in college.
If you could go back in time and give your 16 year old self some advice what would it be?
One day you will become neurotic, so embrace your sense of freedom and being carefree.
