The final selection has been made for the films in the Venice Classics section of the 77th Venice International Film Festival, which this year will be hosted as part of the programme of the festival Il Cinema Ritrovato, promoted by the Cineteca di Bologna, which will take place from August 25th to 31st in Bologna. The collaboration between the two festivals is a concrete sign of the solidarity around us, showing that it is possible to overcome the difficulties of the moment by finding new and original ways of working together to emerge from the isolation provoked by the pandemic. This selection of Venice Classics 2020, to which new titles will be added, will then be screened in Venice in the following months.

The 77th Venice International Film Festival will be held on the Lido di Venezia from September 2nd to 12th, directed by Alberto Barbera.

Venice Classics is the section that since 2012 has presented, to growing acclaim, the world premiere screenings of a selection of the best classic film restorations completed over the past year by film libraries, cultural institutions and production companies from around the world. Venice Classics is curated by Alberto Barbera with the collaboration of Federico Gironi.

The following is the complete line-up of the restored films in the Venice Classics section selected for the 77th Venice Film Festival. They will be screened from August 25th to 31st at the Il Cinema Ritrovato festival in Bologna.
