[Luxus+ Magazine] The 78th edition of the Venice Film Festival renewed with its stars

The Venice Film Festival takes place from September 1 to 11 in the historic Palazzo del Cinema, on the Lido of Venice. Since 2004, films are presented in four sections: In concorso (competition), Orizzonti (Horizons), La Settimana della Critica (Critics’ Week) and Giornate degli Autori, (equivalent to the Directors’ Fortnight in Cannes). At the end of the festival, the Golden Lion will be awarded, so coveted by the directors.

 

This 78th edition is chaired by Bong Joon-ho, Korean director of “Parasite” and among the jurors, we find the actress Virginie Efira and the American director of Chinese origin Chloe Zhao (“Nomadland“).

Organizers hope a strict coronavirus protocol will help prevent any problems during the 11-day movie marathon. Theaters are operating at half capacity and a wall blocks the view of the red carpet to prevent crowds from gathering outside for autographs. Naturally, masks and health passports (or a negative PCR test) are required to attend screenings.
