This year the Venice Film Festival continues its lead on the online screening experience by having the Venice Sala Web serve as a meeting point for film lovers worldwide, who will be able to watch world premieres and follow the buzz on Festival Scope.

In addition to titles from the Orizzonti section and from the Biennale College, the Venice Sala Web will expand to films from other sections. Renowned directors like Wang Bing from China and Parviz Shahbazi from Iran will join a line-up with the new works by Tim Sutton, Gaston Solnicki, Peter Brosens and Jesica Woodwoth.

Four titles supported by the Biennale College will also be part of the line-up. This is a higher education workshop for the development an production of micro-budget feature length films.

The 2016 world premieres will be available to a limited space of 400 tickets per screening, and are available for 4€ or a  Festival Pass (2€ per film from 5 films). Once they have purchased a ticket, users are able to screen the film one during a ten day period, beginning on the day of the film’s official premiere at the Venice Film Festival.
