The Venice International Film Festival -- Venice, Italy



Julie Sisk
The American Pavilion 

Enjoy an Insider's Experience at The Venice International Film Festival!

After a succesful launch of our Insider's Cannes program this May we are expanding our film society festival program to include Venice. 

The Insider's Venice program is a small group educational program designed to give you a behind the scenes look at the oldest film festival in the world. Your American Pavilion hosts are seasoned industry professionals, rich in their knowledge of the festival and the film industry.

"We felt well cared for as if we had a ‘home’ within a huge, impersonal event.  Your food was delicious and your scenic venue on the Mediterranean a "forever memory." 

-- Suki Munsell, Ph.D., California Film Institute Member, Cannes 2015
