The Venice Film Festival Reveals Its Lineup


Hot on the heels of the 2020 New York Film Festival releasing its first selection in Nomadland (taking the Centerpiece slot at the fest), Venice is chiming in as well. Not only are they also going to be showing Chloe Zhao’s movie, but the festival has in fact unveiled its entire lineup for this year. It’s a crop of titles that’s low on flashy name recognition, at least for now, but it’s an international group that should hopefully be cause for some celebration in the cinematic world. These days, that’s hard to come by, to say the least. Read on for the entire list…

If there’s something else of note besides Chloe Zhao’s Nomadland at Venice right now, it’s either The Duke from Roger Michell, starring Jim Broadbent and Helen Mirren, or The World to Come. The former is a crime comedy, while the latter is a Casey Affleck led drama from Mona Fastvold, which also features Christopher Abbott, Vanessa Kirby, and Katherine Waterston. Nomadland is clearly the one to watch, but the festival certainly will not just be one flick, that’s for sure.

Here is what is going to be playing at the Venice Film Festival this year:
