The Venice Film Festival, also known as the Mostra, is the oldest film festival in the world, as its first opening dates from 1932. At first, the festival was only an art exhibition, to which music, cinema, theater, architecture and eventually dance were added, which makes it a unique festival. According to its organizers, the Festival aims to “raise awareness and promote all the various aspects of international cinema in all its forms: as art, entertainment and as an industry, in a spirit of freedom and tolerance”.
The Official Selection is composed of several sections: "Venice 65" (for the 65th edition), "Out of Competition", "Horizons" "Against the stream", and Corto Cortissimo. The films are selected into these sections, according to specific requirements. The festival only presents world premieres of international cinema and awards the best movie with the famous Golden Lion. 'Out of Competition' shows important works of the year by directors already established in the past editions of the festival. "Horizons" is dedicated to new international trends, under the form of a long feature films or documentary. "Controcampo Italiano" provides an overview of Italian cinema's latest trends. Finally, Corto Cortissimo is a competition of short films.
