75th Venice Film Festival


The Venice International Film Festival will be held from 29 August to 8 September 2018 at the Lido. Traditionally, the Venice Film Festival opens on Wednesdays with the traditional Opening Ceremony and closes on Saturdays with the awarding of the coveted Golden Lion.

Who will be there at the 2018 Film Festival? The booklet of invitations was drawn up when the names of the films presented at Venice 75 were made known. Lady Gaga, Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Bradley Cooper are some of the names of the guests of the Venice Film Festival 2018 that we will see on the Lido from August 29th to September 8th, but there are many more. Needless to say, one of the biggest entertainments is to see these guests parade on the red carpet and comment on the looks and hairstyles exhibited on the coveted red carpet. For the second consecutive year the Venice Film Festival will have a godfather, this time it will be Apulian actor Michele Riondino to break the stereotype of the godmother who for decades has marked the event.

Bradley Cooper’s film A star is born (for the first time as the director) will have its world premiere at the 75th Venice Film Festival on 31 August 2018, while in Italian cinemas it will not be released until 11 October. The protagonist, along with Cooper, is nothing less than Lady Gaga playing Ally, a gifted singer who has decided to turn her back on her dream. Cooper, on the other hand, is Jack, the musician who convinces her to bring out her incredible talent. A passionate love story is born between them, but threatened by the instability of the man who grows as Ally’s career takes off.

The kermesse will close with Nick Hamm’s film Driven. It is a film inspired by a true story involving an FBI agent and a pilot who became an informer. In this complicated plot also makes the appearance of the genius of engines, DeLorean that will further complicate the story that promises a “closure” full of emotions
