The 72nd Venice Film Festival has officially kicked off!

This year there are 21 films in competition and they include “The Danish Girl” with Eddie Redmayne, “Beast of No Nation’ with Idris Elba and more.

Some movies will be screened out-of-competition including “Black Mass” with Johnny Depp, “Spotlight” with Michael Keaton and more.

We have quite a number of stars to look out for in the week-long festival. The 72nd Venice film festival runs 2-12 September.

The first day and opening ceremony was kicked off yesterday with a premiere of “Everest” starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Keira Knightley.

    I saw the first picture and words like classy, style came to mind. It made me click on the link, and I wasn’t disappointed.
    The American fashion industry needs to a cue from this folks.

    What i saw was how all photographers can take a que from Getty images. The pictures, are clear, crisp and gives a sense like one was there. One might say its because it is outside, but the inside shots are just as good. There is a reason people recce event venues! Please all photographers should do their due diligence and find adequate spots at venues that will highlight your art and give us clear, fun picture, high resolution pictures.
