    Since Venice seems like it’s going to happen, I thought I would go ahead and make a thread to post everything related to the festival.

    Honestly a bit surprised to see this moving forward! Hopefully the Italian authorities have a good handle on public health regarding the event (certainly trust them more than I do those over here).

    I’ll echo Marco’s appreciation for Petzold and Puiu, while also hesitating with the Blanchett presidency… She handed us an okay winner at Cannes a couple years back, but pairing her with Venice makes me nervous that we are just going to continue seeing them award the Lion to the next Hollywood industry awards contender.

    Well, I read that many safety measures will be taken, garanteeing social distance and so on (for istance, films will be shown not at usual venues but at newly arranged open air ones). Right now, Italy is doing better than many other European countries, although things can quickly change. And, last but not least, Venice is in a region where the situation was treated in a much better way than, say, the one I live in. Let’s keep our fingers crossed!

    And for Blanchett and Venice as a vehicle for Hollywood awards contenders… well, that’s the direction the festival is taking, whether we like it or not 🙁

    Alright! Not a bad lineup; I’d say there’s even a half-decent chance Nomadland doesn’t take the Lion.

    Thanks Diego.
    This lineup is actually very interesting, I’m not sure whether I should feel ashamed or not but – just looking at Main Competition – there are many directors I don’t know. It’s less prestigious, but more exciting than the usual list. The fact that they were forced to a lighter turn on Hollywood productions might actually turn out good.

    On a side note, that’s the second consecutive time that they relegate Wiseman to a minor section. Not nice!

    This festivals going to be huge for Nomandland. Very few other US films are in competition and Nomandland will be the big breakout that everyone talks about, like like Joker was last year, Roma was the year before, and The Shape of Water was the year before that. I could even see Nomandland winning the Golden Palm like those three films did. Perhaps predicting Nomandland for major categories like Best Picture isn’t so much of a stretch now, since it will be one of the few smaller films to get major attention from a festival.

    Netflix not going to the festivals this season is giving a lot of films a time to shine. If they were going, it’s pretty clear Mank would be winning the Golden Lion.

    I hope we get some inspired picks.

    Mank and Fincher will still win Picture and Directing.
