Deadline Now: Venice Film Festival Opens With Masks, Temperature Checks & A Wall Around The Red Carpet

Elizabeth Debicki Venice Film Festival

It’s been a long road to the 2020 edition of the Venice Film Festival.

In November, the city suffered its worst flooding in half a century. In February, the coronavirus hit, prompting an early lockdown.

Now, after Cannes effectively was canceled and Telluride literally so, Venice is giving it a shot. But the world’s oldest film festival is having to adapt to the times.

There will be socially distanced screenings, masks everywhere and a wall between fans and celebrities on the red carpet.
