Posted by Larry Gleeson

The 74th Venice International Film Festival, directed by Alberto Barbera and organized by La Biennale di Venezia, will run at Venice Lido from August 30th to September 9th, 2017.

The aim of the Festival is to raise awareness and promote the various aspects of international cinema in all its forms: as art, entertainment and as an industry, in a spirit of freedom and dialogue. The Festival also organizes retrospectives and tributes to major figures as a contribution towards a better understanding of the history of cinema.

The line-up of the next Festival will be announced during the official press conference to take place in Rome on 27th July (at Cinema Moderno, Piazza della Republica, 11:00 am).
