R101 is the official radio of the 68th International Film Festival of the Venice Biennale to be held from 31 August to 10 September 2011.
For the entire duration of the event R101 will meet exclusively for radio, at its Radiocall stand, delegations for all of the films in competition. From 6 to 9 pm there will be live coverage during the programme presented by Tamara Taylor from the studio set up at the Lancia Cafè, inside the historic Hotel Excelsior, all of the emotion of great international cinema. There will also be a range of detailed background and links with R101’s correspondent Guido Bagatta along with curiosities from the festival, news previews and interviews with the protagonists on the red carpet. And on the evenings of 4th and 5th September, R101 will broadcast a 4-hour special night Music special, – I LOVE MOVIES – consisting entirely of soundtracks representing some of the most engaging music in the history of the cinema. All video, images and coverage will be available on the R101 web TV channel at www.r101.it.
