Venice Film Festival Revisits London for a 2nd Year!

3 February 2023 to 5 February 2023 Curzon

This special season of UK premieres fresh from the Venice Lido is presented in collaboration between La Biennale di Venezia, the Italian Cultural Institute in London, and Curzon.

After a very successful debut in November 202, From Venice to London returns in 2023 for its second edition. Running 3 – 5 February, the festival transports five key titles from the Venice Lido to London’s Curzon Soho. The selection represents the richness and vision of Italian cinema, with narratives exploring and challenging topics such as gender, religion, family, and redemption. With all five titles presented as UK Premieres, and with appearances by directors and cast, From Venice to London gives UK cinema audiences an early opportunity to watch some of the most celebrated films that had their World Premiere in September 2022 at the 79th Venice International Film Festival.


The 2023 programme comprises:

UK Premiere: AMANDA (dir: Carolina Cavalli, Italy/France) - Sunday 5 February at 5:40pm

UK Premiere: BURNING HEARTS (dir: Pippo Mezzapesa, Italy) - Friday 3 February at 6pm.

UK Premiere: CHIARA (dir: Susanna Nicchiarelli, Italy/Belgium) - Sunday 5 February at 2:30pm.

Katia Pizzi, director of the Italian Cultural Institute in London, shares: “It’s my special pleasure to welcome to London the very best of contemporary Italian cinema from the Venice Film Festival. This is Italian film at its best: vibrant, riveting and visually stunning.”
