Film Festivals in Venice and Toronto

The Venice Film Festival was held in (well, that’s easy) Venice, Italy. “Sacro GRA”, an Italian documentary film about the lives of people living on a highway in Rome, the capital of Italy, won the best film award, the Golden Lion. This film festival is the oldest in the world, and was started in 1932. Another famous film festival was also recently held. The Toronto International Film Festival was held in (well, that’s easy too) Toronto, Canada. “12 Years a Slave”, an American film, won the People’s Choice Award, which is the top honors at this Festival. The movie is about a man sold into slavery. This Film Festival started in 1976 and is held every year.
