The films will be streamed concurrently with the official presentations of the films on the Lido, with a limit on the number of viewers.

The 14 short films, available free of charge around the world, may be viewed from the website, with screenings hosted on behalf of the Venice Film Festival on the website operated by Festival Scope ( The films in the line-up include two Italian short films, Preghiera della sera (Diario di una passeggiata) (17’) by Giuseppe Piccioni and Il turno (14’) by Chiara Marotta and Loris Giuseppe Nese, as well as Sad Film (12’) by Vasili (pseudonym), about the street protests that followed the coup d’état in Myanmar.


Feature-length films

The 22 feature-length films, visible only to viewers within the territory of Italy, and selected from the Out of Competition, Orizzonti, Orizzonti Extra and Biennale College Cinema sections of the 78th Venice Film Festival, may be watched from the website, in screenings hosted on the website operated by at the address, on the new Biennale Cinema Channel streaming platform.

The 22 feature-length films of the Sala Web Theatre join the library of 40 films on the new Biennale Channel Cinema streaming platform, which features, in collaboration with MYmovies, a significant selection of films to rediscover from the 2007 to 2020 editions of the Venice International Film Festival, films never released before in Italy.
