The Venice International Film Festival is the oldest film festival in the world and opens its 80th edition today.
The festival opens with the premiere of the Italian World War II film Comandante, directed by Edoardo De Angelis. The event will run through September 9 and will conclude with a Spanish-language Netflix drama Society of the Snow.
The festival takes place on the Lido of Venice – the so-called Venice Beach – a thin barrier island in the Venetian Lagoon, a short boat ride from the capital Venice. Unlike Venice itself, cars can access the Lido.
The festival marks the start of awards season and regularly produces big favorites for the Oscars. Eight of the past eleven Oscars for Best Director went to films that debuted in Venice.
There are several categories that make up the official selection of films shown, the best of which are those competing for the coveted Golden Lion.
New films from directors such as Bradley Cooper, Yorgos Lanthimos, David Fincher, Michael Mann, Sofia Coppola, Ava DuVernay and Ryusuke Hamaguchi compete for the prestigious award.
Movie stars and directors traditionally like to travel to the lagoon city to launch their films. This year, however, will offer a little less sparkle than usual, as a strike by Hollywood actors will prevent many stars from promoting their work here.
Putting a brave face on the anticipated disruption, the festival’s Artistic Director Alberto Barbera has managed to attract one of the strongest line-ups in recent years, defying the gloomy predictions of a massive no-show from major studio productions. defies.

“We know that some talents won’t be there… But others will come because they work in independent films. So everything is good. It looks very positive.’
Outside the picture-perfect canals of Venice, there is a sense of crisis in the film industry, with strikes by both major American actors and writers’ unions bringing much of the entertainment industry to a standstill.
“If the strikes last longer, it will have a huge, negative impact on the next (release) season and also on the awards season,” said Barbera.
