Recently the Venice Film Festival paved its YouTube channel with 70 short films from some of the most influential filmmakers in the world to celebrate the festival's 70th universality. With stories as varied as the creators themselves, this collection features veterans like Abbas Kiarostami or Bernardo Bertolucci as well as newer voices in World Cinema like Pablo Larrain and Yorgos Lanthimos. The directors' individual style are here presented in a smaller canvas to commemorate this milestone for one of cinema's most influential festivals.
