Has anyone ever gone? How much does it cost? Is it worth it?

Mostra Internazionale d'Arte Cinematografica (= Venice Film Festival) is held on the Lungomare Marconi on the LIdo during about 12 days in late August

Check with www.velaspa.com or www.turismovenezia.it for details of this year's programme and ticket prices.

Only you can say if it is worthwhile as it all depends on your own feelings about films and the cinema

Here is another website that will be helpful to you: http://www.labiennale.org/en/cinema/

I e-mailed regarding tickets and they responded that you can purchase them there a day ahead of the screening. They did not give me a price, however. You will find a description of the organization of the festival and the line-up of films to be shown, both in and out of competition. Friends who were in Venice during the festival last year found out about it too late and were unable to get tickets to see a movie but did enjoy wandering around the festival area on the Lido. I also read somewhere, probably on this forum, that some of the movies are shown in an open air setting in Campo San Polo in Venice for those who don't have a chance to get tickets - don't know if that is true or not, but could provide a more Venetian experience than sitting in a theatre. Worth checking out.

Thanks to both of you for your messages. I appreciate it. Me and my friends will be in town this year during the Festival and wanted to get some info before getting there. Thanks again.
