The 75th Venice International Film Festival is organised by La Biennale di Venezia, and took place at Venice Lido from August 29th to September 8th, 2018. 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. The Festival also organises retrospectives and tributes to major figures as a contribution towards a better understanding of the history of cinema.
“The selection reflects a great faith in the movie as a medium and in its capacity to tackle themes of the present, themes that history and the human condition offer for our consideration.”
