Terence Blanchard, Oscar and BAFTA-nominated for Spike Lee's "BlacKkKlansman," and a Grammy winner for the "Blood and Soil" track from the film's original soundtrack, will receive the Venice Film Festival's Campari "Passion for Film" award this year. Blanchard also composed the score for Lee's Netflix film "Da 5 Bloods" and Regina King's "One Night in Miami," which is playing out of competition at Venice. The award, instituted two years ago at the 75th Venice Film Festival, seeks to highlight the contribution of the director's closest collaborators to the fulfilment of the artistic project that each film represents.

The 77th Venice Film Festival runs Sept. 2-12.   READ THE FULL Variety ARTICLE
