July 26 (Bloomberg) -- Robert Redford, “Scarface” director Brian de Palma and “Tree of Life” director Terrence Malick will screen their new movies at the Venice Film Festival, while Spike Lee debuts a documentary about the late Michael Jackson.

The 11-day festival starts Aug. 29 and has 17 movies competing for the Golden Lion trophy. They include Malick’s “To the Wonder,” a romantic drama starring Ben Affleck and Rachel McAdams, and De Palma’s thriller “Passion,” also with McAdams, organizers announced on the festival’s Website.

Screening out of the official competition are Redford’s “The Company You Keep,” with Redford, Shia LaBeouf, and Julie Christie; and Spike Lee’s two-hour Jackson documentary “Bad 25.”

Actors Zac Efron and Dennis Quaid star in the in-competition title “At Any Price,” directed by Iranian-American Ramin Bahrani.

The festival’s opening movie is Mira Nair’s “The Reluctant Fundamentalist,” with Riz Ahmed, Kate Hudson and Kiefer Sutherland. It ends with a title starring Gerard Depardieu: “L’Homme Qui Rit” (“The Man Who Laughs”), directed by Jean-Pierre Ameris.
