Movies like the romantic drama "Lucci" by Daniele Luchetti or Almodovar's "The Human Voice" are due to be displayed this year. Tilda Swinton, actress and Chanel Ambassador not only appeared in an elegant outfit on the red carpet but was also awarded with the Golden Lion Award for Lifetime Achievement.

The talented artist expressed how happy she was for the industry to be able to pull out this festival after so many of them being canceled like The Cannes Festival in May.

Everybody is concerned about the future of the film industry but I think that the fact that festivals are being held and more social and entertainment activities are being allowed means that we are going to overcome this pandemic as long as we respect and care for each other. Stay tuned for more updates these days.
