27 May - 11 September 2022
Each year, from the end of August to the beginning of September, the Lido is the venue for the international Venice Film Festival.
The most famous stars of the screen all meet here for one of the most prestigious prizes in the film world: the Golden Lion, inspired by the symbol of the city and a prize that is as sought after as those of the other main film festivals in Europe such as the Cannes and Berlin Festival; this year it is in its 79th edition, which makes it the longest-running festival today.
This year the Festival starts on 28 August and the Lungomare Marconi on the Lido will be bustling with stars and film lovers, who will not only be able to watch the new films taking part in the competition, but also retrospectives and specific shows.
Owing to its location adjacent to the Festival area, Hotel al Lido Rigel advises you to book your stay for the Film Festival in advance.
The hotel is located less than five minutes by walk from the public water transportation service, with uninterrupted runs, both day and night, connecting the Lido to Venice St. Mark's Square.
