The year 2022 will be no exception to the rule since several celebrities should make the trip to present the most anticipated feature films of the year.

The Venice Film Festival 2022 will be held from August 31 to September 10, 2022. Apart from the dates, little information is currently available regarding the Venice Film Festival 2022. In the previous edition, "The Event" by Audrey Diwan was awarded the Golden Lion, while "The Hand of God" by Paolo Sorrentino received the Silver Lion. Jane Campion won the Silver Lion for Best Direction for 'Power of the Dog'. Below, the photos of the red carpet of the last Venice Film Festival.

The Venice Film Festival takes place every year at the end of summer. The 2022 edition of the international film festival in this Italian city is scheduled from August 31 to September 10, 2022. The winners of this 79th edition will be known on the last day of the festival.

The 2022 official selection of the Venice Film Festival is not yet known. Indeed, the event is currently being prepared. The list of films in competition will be revealed a few weeks before the event takes place. Below, find the list of films presented in competition at the last Venice Film Festival:

Among the films presented out of competition last year, we note the screenings of "Dune", by Denis Villeneuve, but also of "Dernier duel" by Ridley Scott. "Last Night in Soho", by Edgar Wright, was also presented out of competition at the Venice Film Festival, as was Yvan Attal's film, "Human Things". Ridley Scott, Roberto Benigni and Jamie Lee Curtis received a Golden Lion for their respective careers.

The Venice Film Festival takes place over ten days. The event traditionally kicks off with a first screening at 4:00 p.m. on the first day of the festival, before the early evening screening of the opening film that same day. The event ends ten days later, September 10, 2022 with the winners revealed. Find the complete program of the Venice Film Festival on the official website of the festival.

As is the case for the Cannes Film Festival, the Venice Film Festival rewards the favorite films of a jury made up of professionals from the international seventh art. For the time being, we do not know the names of the jurors for the 2022 edition. Last year, the 78th edition was chaired by South Korean director Bong Joon-ho ("Parasite"). To help him establish a prize list, he was accompanied by the Italian director Saverio Costanzo ("Hungry Hearts", "L'amie prodigieuse"), the Franco-Belgian actress Virginie Efira (Benedetta, Adieu les cons), the British actress Cynthia Erivo ("Harriet", "The Widows"), Canadian actress Sarah Gadon ("A Dangerous Method", "Cosmopolis", "Captive"), Romanian director Alexander Nanau ("The Collective Affair ") and Chinese director Chloé Zhao ("Nomadland", "The Eternals").

It is possible to go to the Venice Film Festival as a spectator. Note that cinema professionals, but also the press, can request accreditation to attend screenings free of charge. The public can for its part buy tickets to attend the screenings of certain prizes. Prices vary between 7 and 50 euros per screening depending on the rooms and times. It is also possible to subscribe to a "per room" subscription: this can vary from 35 to 1600 euros depending on the schedule, the room or the location in the room. Find all the information regarding registration and the purchase of tickets for the Venice Film Festival 2022 on the official website of the festival.
