Venice Film Festival

The Venice Film Festival (Mostra Internazionale d'Arte Cinematografica) takes place every year in late August/early September on the Lido di Venezia in the historic Palazzo del Cinema on the Lungomare Marconi, in Venice, Italy.

Its main award is the "Leone d'Oro" (Golden Lion). Recently, a new award has been added, the San Marco[?] Award for the best film in the "controcorrente" section.
