Facts about Venice Film Festival
The Venice Film Festival is known as the first international event of this kind. This festival is more known as one of the intellectuals and the lovers of non-mass cinema! Something in a different level far from the rest of the festivals of such! The award of the best film here is the Golden Lion and the judges are pretty meticulous when it comes to the selection of the winner of this award.
The people who became twice laureates are André Cayatte, Louis Malle, Chinese Zhang Yimou and Ang Lee. The well-known movies that could receive this award are Three Colors: Blue, Rosencrantz, and Guildenstern Are Dead, Romeo and Juliet and Brokeback Mountain. It is interesting to know that there is an unspoken tradition that is followed by all the nominees and winner of this show.
They are obliged to make a sarcastic show about Hollywood. A perfect solution that this festival although of for the ones that cannot fly there to watch their favourite movie is that you can watch the movie that you like for the first time online on the official website of the festival and of course you have to pay the subscription fee which is pretty close to the price you have to pay to watch a movie at a cinema!
This festival was first held in 1932 and the founder was Mussolini. Just like any other events of such, at first, everything was fair until Mussolini decided to interfere and get the movies that were mainly from Germany and Italy to receive the award called Mussolini Cup. And this is where another event emerged and later on became the Cannes Film Festival.
For whatever reason, the favorite number for this event is 7! There are seven major awards in the show including the Golden Lion. It goes on with the Silver Lion, two Volpi Cups for best actor and actress, Marcello Mastroianni Award for best young actor/actress, the Osella awarded to "off-screen characters" like writers, cameramen, and many others, and a special prize of the jury.
