The 78th Venice Film Festival has opened


Despite the coronavirus pandemic, the famous Venice Film Festival in Italy has started. On Wednesday evening, movie stars from around the world gathered to celebrate the opening of the festival.

Unlike the Cannes Film Festival, the Venice Film Festival was also held in 2020, although only this year were the stars able to walk the red carpet and physically attend the festival.

For 11 days, the guests of the Venice Film Festival will follow a strict protocol developed by the organizers to protect themselves from the coronavirus.

Cinemas will work at half capacity for screenings. It will be mandatory to wear a turban and submit a negative answer to the Covid-19 test. In other cases, guests will not be able to attend both the screening and the relatively small parties.

“They take security measures very seriously. Everyone acts very carefully and responsibly. I think [კინოს] “It is very good for the industry that the old events are slowly coming back,” Penelope Cruz told reporters.

This is one of the most important events in the history of the American Film Academy Awards, held for the 78th time in history.
