Mostra Internazionale d'Arte Cinematografica, Venice's film festival, is the oldest film festival in the world and traditionally takes place on Lido island. This prestigious film festival is notable for its non-Hollywood programming, although many world-famous stars can still be seen here. The Leone d'Oro (Golden Lion) Award is presented at the festival, which is part of the Biennale, a major festival for contemporary art. This year the festival opens with 'Burn After Reading', a film written and directed by Academy Award winners Joel and Ethan Coen.
