Venice Film Festival Is Still on for September, Governor Confirms

Annual festival is set to be held Sept. 2-12

Luca Zaia, governor of the Italian region of Veneto, announced on Sunday that plans are still moving forward to hold the Venice Film Festival from Sept. 2-12.

The confirmation comes days after the Venice Biennale, which organizes the film festival, moved the dates for its 17th International Architecture Exhibition to 2021, but maintained the dates for the film festival. Zaia, who is also a board member on the Biennale, said that while the festival will move forward, attendees should expect that fewer films will be featured. Cate Blanchett is set to preside over the festival’s jury.
