Venice Film Festival 2020 auteur edition
The Italian movies
Venice Film Festival 2020 auteur edition, this year the Venice Film Festival will take place anyway. The most famous international film festival in the world, set in one of the most unique cities in the world. This year it can be called “miraculous” edition because they will still manage to hold the festival after the Covid crisis. The result is a Venice with fewer overall titles, just over 60, 18 films in competition. Four Italians and eight directors in the running and with a Berlinale soul where traditionally there is more attention to quality than glamour.
The Italian quartet of films in competition is composed of: LE SORELLE MACALUSO by Emma Dante, MISS MARX by Susanna Nicchiarelli, PADRENOSTRO by Claudio Noce. And the documentary NOTTURNO by Gianfranco Rosi.
The film by Nanni Moretti TRE PIANI will not be present. In the official selection, always among Italians, there will be LACCI by Daniele Luchetti, out of competition at the opening. Then LASCIAMI ANDARE by Stefano Mordini, in closing.
The Film Festival
Venice Film Festival 2020 will take place, taking into account the rules on social distancing. The pandemic has not stopped the most important exhibition of Italian cinema that will take place in September 2020. To meet the rules to be respected for Covid, the total number of films in the official selection will be reduced. However, the exhibition will be the same in the same programme from 2 to 12 September 2020. The programme includes the confirmation of the competitive sections Venezia 77 and Orizzonti. Programming will be held but the number of spectators will certainly be reduced.
In addition, all the rules on social distancing will be followed during the screenings. The programme will also include the Out of Competition section, as well as the Biennale College Cinema. The cinemas where the films and documentaries will be screened will be the usual ones traditionally set up on the Lido.
This year there will be the 77th Venice Film Festival. Organized by the Biennale di Venezia and directed by Alberto Barbera. Founded in 1932, the Venice Film Festival is fast becoming one of the most important film festivals in the world. The seats for the screenings were sold on the first day of sale, mostly online from buyers from all over the world a proof of how popular this artistic event is becoming. It is one of the most glorious festivals.
