Venice International Film Festival
From August 28, one of the most important international events for the film industry
The 76th Venice International Film Festival, organized by La Biennale di Venezia and directed by Alberto Barbera, will take place at Venice Lido from August 28th to September 7th, 2019.
The aim of the Festival is to raise awareness and promote international cinema in all its forms: art, entertainment industry, in a spirit of freedom and dialogue.
The Festival also organizes retrospectives and tributes to major figures in order to give people the opportunity to better understand the history of cinema.
The history behind this festival is very peculiar.
Its first edition in 1932 was very small as the movie Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Rouben was projected on the terrace of Hotel Excelsior, wonderful location both for holidays and for public or private events.
It evolved during years, becoming one of the most important appointments about international movies in the world.
Every year between the end of August and the beginning of September, the city hosts V.I.P and a lot of fans come to Venice to watch new selected movies and to assist to award ceremonies.
the 2019 Lifetime Achievement Award “Golden Lions” will be attributed to the actress Julie Andrews
Locations: Venice Lido (Palazzo del Cinema, Casinò, Sala Darsena, and PalaBiennale).
