Italian and foreign University students of all the faculties have also this year the opportunity to participate as protagonists at the 76th Venice International Film Festival.
University Student Accreditation
La Biennale di Venezia, on the occasion of the 76th Venice International Film Festival (Lido di Venezia, 28th August – 7th September 2019), encourages and favors the participation of University students in the Festival by offering a special accreditation.
The University Students accreditation can be requested by Italian and foreign students of any course of study. The accreditation is valid for the 11-day duration of the Festival (28th August – 7th September 2019) and will allow access to about 200 screenings reserved for accredited visitors and including films in the official line-up (selected screenings as long as seats are available).
The cost of the accreditation with Early Bird fee is € 50 (instead of € 90) for accreditation requests received by 30th May 2019.
In order to benefit from the Early Bird fee the payment shall be done by 5th June 2019.
The accreditation for University Students also allows to have:
- accommodation at a special price in university facilities for the entire duration of the Festival;
- discounted price on the Venice International Film Festival's catalogue;
- discounted prices for tickets of the 58th International Art Exhibition (Giardini and Arsenale, 11th May – 24th November 2019) and a free guided tour dedicated to accreditation holders.
Cinema accreditation is exclusively reserved to those who operate within the film sector under a cultural profile. La Biennale di Venezia offers in this regard to University students, attending courses in the theory and history of film at Italian or foreign universities the possibility to purchase the Cinema accreditation at a special price. This accreditation allows you to fully immerse yourself in the atmosphere of the Festival, granting access to the screenings of the films in competition and those presented in the other sections of the Festival, as well as taking advantage of special opportunities for meeting and discussion. Early bird fee (€ 50 instead of € 90) is available for this applicants category until May 30th.
