3 French films in competition at the 75th Venice International Film Festival

Three French films, directed by Olivier Assayas, Jacques Audiard, and David Oelhoffen, will be presented in competition at the 75th Venice International Film Festival, which opened its doors on August 29. Altogether, nearly 40 films of various formats produced or co-produced by France will make their world premieres this year at the world's longest-standing film festival.

In addition to the French films selected in the Official Competition, around a dozen feature films solely or majority-produced by France (including new films by Valeria Bruni-Tedeschi, Pierre Schoeller, and Mikhaël Hers), as well as sixteen films minority co-produced by France and five shorts will be screened to audiences at the oldest film festival in the world—not to mention French virtual reality works, with seven French productions presented in or out of competition at the 2nd edition of Venice VR. This year's Venice Film Festival will close its doors on September 8.

It is also worth noting that the French documentary project titled The Waiting Bench (co-produced with Germany, along with Mahamat-Saleh Haroun from Chad) has been selected to take part in the 6th Final Cut in Venice Workshop, whose aim is to support six chosen projects from African and Near-Eastern countries.

UniFrance will be out in force in Venice to accompany French productions and actors and directors from these films during the festival. Members of the French delegation to be announced so far include Olivier Assayas, Guillaume Canet, Vincent Macaigne, Christa Théret, Reda Kateb, Matthias Schoenaerts, David Oelhoffen, Jacques Audiard, John C. Reilly, Alexandre Desplat, Laurent Lafitte, Sébastien Marnier, Mikhaël Hers, Vincent Lacoste, Stacy Martin, Valeria Bruni-Tedeschi, Yolande Moreau, Valeria Golino, Riccardo Scamarcio, Pierre Schoeller, Louis Garrel, Céline Sallette, Amos Gitaï, Rithy Panh, Joachim Lafosse, Nora Hamzawi, Elsa Amiel, Claire Burger, Bouli Lanners, Sarah Henochsberg, Elsa Amiel, Sarah Marx, Sandor Funtek, Stacy Martin, Agathe Bonitzer, Thomas Scimeca, Maxime Matray, Alexia Walther.
