US film director Michael Mann will lead the jury at this year's Venice Film Festival, organisers have announced.

Best known for crime dramas Heat and The Insider, the 69-year-old will help decide the winner of the prestigious Golden Lion prize.

Last year, the award went to Alexander Sokurov's adaptation of Faust.

Previous winners include Ang Lee, Sofia Coppola and Wim Wenders.

The annual event will run from 29 August to 8 September this year.
