Venice Film Festival 2023

30 August 2023 - 9 September 2023

Venice Film Festival 2023. Now in its 80th edition, the famous Venice Film Festival will be held on the Lido of Venice from 30 August to 9 September 2023. Directed by Alberto Barbera and awaiting the final list of 21 participating films in world premiere, who will win the Golden Lion for Best Film and the Coppa Volpi for Best Actor? All ready then on the red carpet to meet the most famous actors who participate in large numbers every year.

Guadagnino and Zendaya open the Venice Film Festival with the film ‘Challengers’. It will be presented, out of competition, as a world premiere on the evening of Wednesday 30 August, in the Sala Grande of the Palazzo del Cinema. For the director, it is “a dream come true”.

Here are the films invited to the Festival.

Poor creatures! After The Favourite, Yorgos Lanthimos and Emma Stone are expected to return to the Lido with this surreal gothic science fiction story, based on a novel by Alasdair Grey and centred on a Victorian-era woman brought back to life by an eccentric scientist. Also in the cast are Willem Dafoe, Mark Ruffalo, Christopher Abbott and Margaret Qualley.

El Conde. Pablo Larraín’s new film will also have a fantasy element: Alfredo Castro will play the former Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet. He is not actually dead but a vampire who, after 250 years, decides to end it all once and for all.

Ferrari. Michael Mann’s new film will see Adam Driver in the role of Enzo Ferrari. The cast also includes Penélope Cruz, Shailene Woodley, Patrick Dempsey and Jack O’Connell.

Priscilla. After Elvis, the King of Rock returns to the cinema played by Jacob Elordi (Euphoria), but the focus of the film is of course his wife Priscilla Presley (Cailee Spaeny).

Memory. From Michel Franco, director of Nuevo Orden and Sundown, a film starring Jessica Chastain and Peter Sarsgaard whose plot is kept secret for now. All we know is that the film was shot in New York.

Coup de chance. Woody Allen’s new film. Shot in Paris with a cast that includes Valerie Lemercier, Niels Schneider, Lou de Laage, Elsa Zylberstein and Melvil Poupaud, the film will be a Match Point-style thriller.

DogMan. Luc Besson’s directorial comeback, starring Caleb Landry Jones, will focus on Douglas, a man who, after being abused and thrown to the dogs by his abusive father, has developed a symbiotic relationship with those dogs and now uses them as his allies.

The Theory of Everything. We’re not talking about the Stephen Hawking biopic starring Eddie Redmayne, but a black-and-white Hitchcockian thriller of the same name directed by German director Tim Kroger, which could be selected for the Venice Film Festival.
