I’m sad as The Bienalle is reaching the end. Everything is closing down and people are slowly leaving the Lido. The Giornate Degli Autori Villa is more or less empty and the atmosphere inside the Festival area seems dull. I guess everyone is exhausted after a long and busy festival.
Participating in the 27 Times Cinema initiative has really been a great experience and I’ve been enjoying every second of it. I will miss it all.
My top five favorite films of the festival (In no particular order):
Post Mortem (Pablo Larraín)
Essential Killing (Jerzy Skolimowski)
Silent Souls (Aleksei Fedorchenko)
Incendies (Denis Villeneuve)
Somewhere (Sofia Coppola)
