VENICE, Italy (AP) — After 10 days that brought cinematic tales of war, crime and turmoil to the tranquil Lido island, the Venice Film Festival is set to crown its prize-winner.

A jury led by Mexican director Alfonso Cuaron will award the Golden Lion Saturday to one of 21 competing films. Critics' favorites include Amos Gitai's anatomy of an assassination, "Rabin: The Last Day"; Marco Bellocchio's lush vampire fable "Blood of My Blood"; and Charlie Kaufman and Duke Johnson's animated "Anomalisa."

Beyond the prizes, the festival provided red carpet photo-opportunities for stars including Jake Gyllenhaal, Kristen Stewart, Tilda Swinton and Johnny Depp.

It also identified some early potential Oscar contenders, including Depp for his performance as gangster Whitey Bulger in "Black Mass," and Eddie Redmayne as a transgender artist in "The Danish Girl."
