Emphasising the online screening experience in addition to its regular programming, the Venice Film Festival (31 August-10 September) continues exploring an international audience beyond the traditional movie theatres. For its new edition, the Venice Sala Web will serve as the meeting point for film lovers worldwide, who will have the possibility to watch world premieres and follow the Biennale buzz on the Festival Scope website.

Only 400 tickets will be available for each film. In addition to titles from the Orizzonti section and the Biennale College, the Venice Sala Web will for the first time be expanding to include selected films from other sections, making 18 movies in total (see the line-up below). Cineuropa is offering film enthusiasts from all over the world the opportunity to see the films. Just register here by 4 September to be in with a chance of being one of the 400 lucky cinephiles who will get access to each film.

Aside from our contest, digital tickets for Sala Web screenings are on sale on Festival Scope. Users may register to buy tickets for the online screenings, with all tickets priced at €4, or they can obtain a Festival Pass (€2 per film, from five films). Once they have purchased a ticket for their chosen title, users will be able to screen the film once during a ten-day period beginning at 9pm (Venice time; GMT+2) on the day of the film’s official premiere at the Venice Film Festival.

The fifth edition of this innovative project will be an opportunity not only for film lovers, but also for directors, to find synergies with an audience of cinephiles, eager for new artistic surprises. This is how the Biennale sees it – in the words of its director, Alberto Barbera: “We believe that film festivals can always find new ways to reach international audiences, and that is especially true thanks to new technologies. Sala Web is a key example of this, as it allows filmmakers to find their public beyond all boundaries, something that was impossible only a few years ago. As the first film festival in history, the Venice Film Festival needs to be part of this new story that is being told.”
