Single tickets are available for each screening, with prices starting at €5.50 for short movies and Venice classics, such as Steven Spielberg’s Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977).

However, attendees also have the option to purchase “subscriptions”. These tickets entitle purchasers to attend a number of screenings. This works out cheaper than purchasing a ticket for each film separately.

Likewise, some subscriptions allow the ticket holder to attend all screenings played in one of the festival’s particular rooms.

A large number of tickets are still available to purchase for a range of films. Although, some of the more popular titles, such as those shortlisted for the Golden Lion award, have sold out.

Likewise, if you were hopeful of attending the red-carpeted opening ceremony, you’re unfortunately too late. Tickets have sold out for the star-studded event and Downsizing screening.

However, going by the success of past opening films, such as La La Land (2016) and Gravity (2013), there will undoubtedly be other opportunities to watch Alexander Payne’s  sci-fi comedy.
