Visit the Lido Without Spending the Big Bucks: Ten Venice Features to Stream Online

Visit the Lido Without Spending the Big Bucks: Ten Venice Features to Stream Online

For the first time in the history of the Venice Film Festival (August 29-September 8), 10 feature films and 13 short films from the Orizzonti section of the fest will be available for streaming all over the world, concurrent with the films’ debuts on the Lido. No, guys, you will not be able to stream “The Master.”

To access the Biennale’s virtual theater online, all you have to do is register and make a “seat” reservation (500 per screening) on the fest’s website. Then the user purchases a virtual ticket for 4.20 euros, and is sent a personal link good for one screening only.

The mission statement of this initiative:

The goal of this important experimental initiative is to make the Biennale’s effort to promote and support new films, and in particular young authors, even more effective by exploiting the potential offered by modern web technology. Orizzonti will present debut films and feature-length films from the fringes, as well as works that explore current genres and production pursuing innovation and creative originality.

Each film will be available for viewing in streaming for 24 hours starting at 9:00 PM (Italian time) on the day of the film’s official presentation at the Venice Film Festival, according to the following schedule:
