41st Venice International Film Festival

The 41st Venice International Film Festival was held in 1984 under the direction of Gian Luigi Rondi. No Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement was assigned. The main event of this edition was, out of competition, the premiere of Heimat, an almost 16 hours-long film directed by Edgar Reitz. Among the other titles showed out of competition there were Steven Spielberg's Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Wolfgang Petersen's The NeverEnding Story and a restored version of Metropolis edited and scored by Giorgio Moroder. The retrospective was dedicated to Luis Buñuel.
