VENICE MOSTRA 2023. We summarize all the information you need to know about the 80th Venice Film Festival, which will reward the best of cinema in the fall of 2023.
[Updated December 21, 2022 at 3:12 p.m.] The Venice Film Festival is an Italian film festival that annually rewards the best of the international seventh art. It is also an opportunity to preview some of the most anticipated films of the end of the year, whether auteur films or blockbusters. For the moment, we do not know the date of the 2023 edition, which should however take place like every year at the end of the summer, more precisely between the end of August and the beginning of September.
In 2022, the documentary "All the beauty and the bloodshed", which deals with the opiate crisis, won the Golden Lion. The French Alice Diop, for her part, won the Silver Lion-Grand Jury Prize for her latest feature film, "Saint Omer", about an infanticidal mother. For his part, Luca Guadigno, to whom we owe "Call me by your name", was crowned Best Director for "Bones and all". Several actors also left with a prize from the Venice Film Festival. This is the case of Cate Blanchett, who received the award for best female interpretation for the film "TÁR". For his part, Colin Farrell won the prize for best male interpretation, rewarding his work on the film "The Banshees of Inisherin". Finally, Taylor Russell, seen in "Bones and all", received the award for best hope. Below, find the most beautiful photos of the Venice Film Festival red carpet.
The Venice Film Festival takes place every year at the end of summer. The 2023 edition of the international film festival in this Italian city does not yet have a known date. However, this should begin at the end of August and end at the beginning of September 2023 with the revelation of the complete winners.
For the time being, we do not know the official selection of the Venice Film Festival 2023, which will be unveiled a few months before the start of the Italian festival. Below, find the list of films presented in competition at the last Venice Film Festival:
Films screened out of competition last year included screenings of Olivia Wilde's Don't Worry Darling with Florence Pugh and Harry Styles, as well as Paul Schrader's Master Gardener. Lars von Trier's series Riget Exodus and Nicolas Winding Refn's Copenhagen Cowboy will also screen out of competition
The Venice Film Festival takes place over ten days. The event traditionally kicks off with a first screening at 4:00 p.m. on the first day of the festival, before the early evening screening of the opening film that same day. The event ends ten days later with the winners announced. Find the complete program of the Venice Film Festival on the official website of the festival.
As is the case for the Cannes Film Festival, the Venice Film Festival rewards the favorite films of a jury made up of professionals from the international seventh art. The jury for the 2023 festival is not yet known. Last year, Julianne Moore was chosen as president of the jury for this 79th edition. In order to establish the prize list, she will be helped by the Argentinian director Mariano Cohn, the Italian director Leonardo Di Costanzo, the French director Audrey Diwan (who received the Golden Lion last year for The Event), the Iranian actress Leila Hatami, British-Japanese screenwriter Kazuo Ishiguro and Spanish director Rodrigo Sorogoyen (As Bestas).
It is possible to go to the Venice Film Festival as a spectator. It should be noted that cinema professionals, but also the press, can request accreditation to attend screenings free of charge. The public can for its part buy tickets to attend the screenings of certain prizes. Prices vary between 7 and 50 euros per screening depending on the rooms and times. It is also possible to subscribe to a "per room" subscription: this can vary from 35 to 1600 euros depending on the schedule, the room or the location in the room. Find all the information regarding registration and the purchase of tickets for the Venice Film Festival on the official website of the festival.
