The quality of the program is underlined by the fact that most of the projects are selected in A-Festivals afterwards.
To name but a few of the most recent titels, Under the Fig Trees by Erige Sehiri has been selected for the Quinzaine des Realisateurs in 2022.
The Sea Ahead  by Ely Dagher, that won the Premio La Biennale di Venezia at Final Cut in Venice 2020, was selected at Quinzaine des Réalisateurs in 2021, while We, Students! by Rafiki Fariala was greatly acclaimed in the Panorama section at Berlinale 2022.

Closing note:
For the second consecutive year, La Biennale di Venezia, on the occasion of the Venice International Film Festival, aims to carbon neutrality. This involves reducing and offsetting the emission of carbon dioxide through targeted actions that require the involvement and attention of all Festival participants. We would like to thank you in advance for your collaboration in achieving this ambitious goal, which will be reached through the individual behaviour of each of us and, for those who wish to do so, through a voluntary contribution to offset emissions.
