Venice International Film Festival has today announced its full lineup for its 77th edition, including Mona Fastvold’s “The World to Come” starring Casey Affleck and Vanessa Kirby, and the documentary “Salvatore – Shoemaker of Dreams” from Luca Guadagnino.

It was previously announced that Daniele Luchetti’s “Lacci” would be opening the festival, the first Italian film to do so since Giuseppe Tornatore’s “Baarìa” 11 years ago.

It was also previously announced yesterday that Chloé Zhao’s “Nomadland” starring Frances McDormand would be playing at the festival simultaneously with Toronto, as well as a screening later that evening at “Telluride from Los Angeles” and a part of the NYFF58 as the festival’s centerpiece. The film is set to screen In Competition.

Jurors at the festival include Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett, British director Jonathan Hogg, Veronika Franz, Nicola Lagioia, Christian Petzold, Cristi Puiu, and Ludivine Sagnier.

Last year’s festival saw “Joker” triumph with the Golden Lion, with other major Oscar players to play at the festival in recent years including “Birdman” and “La La Land.”
