Venice International Film Festival 2017 Film Lineup

Mother!, Suburbicon, Downsizing, and other films screening at the 2017 Venice International Film Festival (VIFF) have been announced. The 74th Venice International Film Festival is “the oldest film festival in the world and one of the “Big Three” film festivals alongside the Cannes Film Festival and Berlin International Film Festival.”

First Mother!, Downsizing, and The Shape of Water were announced earlier this week to be showing at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival. Now those same films are being shown at VIFF as well.

Racer and The Jailbird looks as though it will be entertaining on two levels: a love drama and a action movie. Brawl In Cell Block 99 stars Jennifer Carpenter and Vince Vaughn but a trailer for the film has not been released yet.
