Venice film festival


I have two questions about the film festival. My husband and I are thinkng of going to a 5pm screening. There is almost zero chance of us going to a private event.

1) is there time to finish the screening and get from a Lido to San Marco for a 9pm concert? I am not sure how easy travel will be with the crowds and how timely the screenings are.

2) what is the dress code for an evening screening (male and female)?

The No 1 water bus departs every 12 minutes from Santa Maria Elizabetta landing stage on the Lido until 21.08 and thereafter every 20 minutes. It takes 16 minutes to get to San Zaccaria landing stage close to the Doge's Palace.

I have never been to the Fiml Festival but if it is like the rest of Venice there is no dress code. Smart casual will get you anywhere.

Travelling from the film festival area to St.Mark's doesn't take more than 30 minutes.

You either take a bus to Santa Maria Elisabetta (5-7 minutes) then a waterbus to San Zaccaria (#1, #2, #5.2, #14 - 15 minutes) or take an express waterbus from the film festival area (Lido Casinò) to San Zaccaria (line 20 or line MC).
