The Venice Critics’ Poll

All FIPRESCI members who will attend the Venice Film Festival 2016 are kindly invited to participate in the FNE-FIPRESCI critic’s poll (which we do together with the magazine Film New Europe).  

You will be asked to rate any feature-length film you see in the main competition, in the Horizons section, Venice Days and Critics Week. Just judge the films (with one to five stars) you see. 

The results will be published daily on

To sign up, please send an email to
There are three options:
1. You attend the festival for the first five days, August 31 – September 4. 
2. You attend the festival for the last six days, September 5-10. 
3. You attend the whole festival, August 31 – September 10, 2016.
Please make your choice known when you check on.

It goes without saying that members of any Venice jury cannot participate in this poll.
