*We must inform you of a change that was communicated to us by the management of the Venice Film Festival (“La Mostra”) during a recent meeting.

At the Festival’s request, registration fees to submit a Canadian feature film at the Mostra (for all three sections, Competition, Out of Competition and Orizzonti) and to Venice Days will apply from now on for all films, starting in 2019.  This policy applies for all countries. You will also need to submit your registration and honor the fees on the festival website directly. Telefilm Canada will no longer receive submissions for La Mostra and Venice Days on Grenadine

Only films submitted to the Venice Critics’ Week via GRENADINE will be sent to the selection committee of the festival and the fee will be waived.*


Telefilm Canada recognizes selection to this Festival as part of its Success Index and provides assistance through the International Festival Participation Program.
