Going beyond traditional theatre audiences, the 74th Venice Film Festival continues to push boundaries by presenting its programming online. Returning for a new edition the Venice Sala Web serves as the meeting point for film lovers worldwide, who have the possibility to watch world premieres and take part in the Biennale buzz on www.festivalscope.com/venicesalaweb2017. Only 400 tickets will be available for each film.
6th edition of the Sala Web
In addition to titles from the Orizzonti section and from Biennale College, the Venice Sala Web will expand for the second time to selected films from Out of Competition and Cinema nel Giardino sections. Renown directors like Abel Ferrara, Verena Paravel and Lucien Castaing-Taylor will join a line-up with several debut films, like those by Sofia Djama, Ali Asgari and Jason Raftopoulos.
Three titles supported by the Biennale College - Cinema will also be part of the Venice Sala Web line-up. The Biennale College is a higher education workshop for the development and production of micro-budget feature length films, and a launching platform for new talent, like Rania Attieh & Daniel Garcia with H. in 2014 and Anna Rose Holmer with THE FITS in 2015.
The 6th edition of this innovative project will be not only an opportunity for film lovers, but also for directors to find synergies with an audience of cinephiles, eager for new artistic surprises.
