The 72nd Venice Film Festival opens today, with two exceptional Victorian films included in the program.
Supported through Film Victoria's Assigned Production Investment program, Looking for Grace will have its World Premiere in competition at the Venice Film Festival.
The debut feature from documentary duo Bentley Dean and Martin Butler, Tanna will screen as part of the Venice International Film Critics Week Competition, a satellite program of films selected by the National Union of Italian Film Critics.
Tanna (formerly Taboo) was also supported through Film
Victoria's Assigned Production Investment and Feature Film Development
programs. It follows a traditional tribal society at war with its
neighbours and an unfolding tale of treachery and desire.
The Venice Film Festival and the Venice International Film Critics Week run from 2-12 September.
