Venice Film Fest Announces 2014 Dates
ROME – The 71st edition of the Venice Film Festival will take place August 27-Sept. 6, 2014, festival officials said Tuesday, while revealing that this year’s edition of the world’s oldest film festival saw a 20 percent increase in attendance compared to the previous year.
Officials also said that the Darsena, one the Venice’s principal venues, will see an increase in seating next year, with 110 new seats added to bring the total number of seats in the facility to 1,409.
Though the Toronto Film Festival has not yet announced the dates for its next edition, Venice’s dates mean the two iconic events are likely to overlap again in 2014. Traditionally, Toronto gets underway midway through the second week of the festival in Venice.
