The selection from the Out of Competition, Orizzonti and Sconfini sections marks the eighth year of the online Web Theatre - which offers a maximum of 1000 tickets for each screening, with each version featuring subtitles in Italian and English. The films will stream from 9pm Italian time on the day they are presented on the Lido an will be available until September 19.

This year's line-up includes Colectiv (Collective), by German-Romanian documentarian Alexander Nanau (The Prince Of Nothingwood), plus the second feature by Théo Court, White On White, about a wedding photographer who becomes obsessed with the bride to be, starring Alfredo Castro.
