The weekend arrives noisy and busy on the Lido. It's the ideal frame for parties, celebrations and assorted special events. We were more than happy to oblige with our traditional annual reception at the Hotel Excelsior, honoring the wealth of filmmaking talent assembled for the festival. Elsewhere, life went on Venice-style: red carpet walks, excited fans and famous friends & family.
