'Michael Jackson's Thriller 3D' World Premiere at Venice Festival 2017
The long-rumored 3D version of the short film Thriller is now slated to make its world premiere. The estate of Michael Jackson announces earlier this month that Michael Jackson’s Thriller 3D will debut at the 74th annual Venice Film Festival (Aug. 30-Sept. 9).

Branca and fellow Jackson estate co-executor John McClain will join Landis when Michael Jackson’s Thriller 3D is screened at the Venice Film Festival along with the original Making of Michael Jackson’s Thriller. It was Branca, Jackson’s then-attorney, who negotiated the history-making deal between MTV and Showtime for this first of its kind documentary, which helped offset the cost of filming Thriller.

With its nearly 14-minute running time and feature film aesthetics, Thriller redefined the traditional video when it opened at the Avco Theatre in Los Angeles in 1983 for a sold-out three-week run. The short film was directed by John Landis
