Venice International Film Festival line up

The 65th Venice International Film Festival, organised by the Venice Biennale, will take place at Venice Lido from August 27th to September 6th 2008. The aim of the Festival is to encourage the awareness and the promotion of all the various aspects of international cinema as art, entertainment and industry, in a spirit of freedom and tolerance.

Marco Müller will be the director of this edition, continuing the work he began in 2004.


The line-up of the 65th Venice Film Festival includes the following sections:

Venezia 65: an international competition of feature films, presented as world premieres and running for the Golden Lion

Out of Competition: important works of the year, and in particular those by directors already established in past editions of the Festival

Orizzonti: a section aiming to provide an overview of new trends in cinema

Corto Cortissimo: an international competition of short films (not exceeding 30 minutes)

These Phantoms: Italian Cinema Rediscovered (1946-1975): a new series of retrospective screenings and restorations



In addition to the official selection, there are two autonomous and collateral sections:

International Critics’ Week: a series of seven or eight films –debut works– independently organized by a commission nominated by the National Syndicate of Italian Film Critics (SNCCI) in accordance with its own regulations

Giornate degli Autori – Venice Days: a series of 10-12 films independently organized by a commission nominated by the Italian Association of Film-makers (ANAC - Associazione Nazionale Autori Cinematografici) and by the Association of Independent Directors and Producers (API - Associazione Autori e Produttori Indipendenti) in accordance with their own regulations
