The 77th Venice International Film Festival is organised by La Biennale di Venezia and directed by Alberto Barbera. It takes place at Venice Lido from 2 – 12 September 2020. The Festival is officially recognised by the FIAPF (International Federation of Film Producers Association).
The aim of the Festival is to raise awareness and promote international cinema in all its forms as art, entertainment and as an industry, in a spirit of freedom and dialogue.
