The collaboration between Tucano and the Venice International Film Festival of the Biennale di Venezia is once again consolidated by participating in a project that is a global expression of art and culture. There is a longstanding affinity between Tucano and the Venice International Film Festival, expressed through products designed exclusively for the festival and “Made in Milano”. This year the Lungomare Marconi will once more be filled with tote bags in green, orange, and blue, which have been made for the event’s Industry Office.
The opening film of the festival will be Downsizing by Alexander Payne, followed by a series of highly anticipated titles, including: Suburbicon, directed by George Clooney and written by the Coen brothers; The Shape of Water directed by Guillermo del Toro, and Koreeda Hirokazu’s The Third Murder. Paolo Virzì will be presenting his first American film The Leisure Seeker but he’s not the only Italian Director. Also on the schedule are: the musical Ammore e Malavita, by the Manetti Bros.; Andrea Pallaoro’s Hannah, with Charlotte Rampling in the starring role; and Sebastiano Riso, the director of Una Famiglia (A Family).
Special films being shown outside of the competition include those by Amelio, Soldini, Patierno and Antonietta de Lillo. Among this year’s innovations we find the large space that is devoted to virtual reality with no less than 22 products created for the event.
The jury, headed up by President Annette Bening, will be composed of 9 well-known cinema and culture personalities from several different countries.
During the event it will be possible to purchase the official tote bag, produced by Tucano for the merchandising stores, in three different locations (in Cà Giustinian and Giardini and Arsenale areas), you can also buy a selection of Tucano products at Cà Giustinian in Venice.
