Coming on the heels of TIFF 2015 announcements, we've now got the films playing the 72nd Venice International Film Festival.

There are a few carryovers from Toronto in the competition section, including Cary Fukunaga's newest film Beasts of No Nation, which is actually going straight to Netflix. We've also got the new films from Drake Doremus, Atom Egoyan, and Tom Hooper, and Martin Scorsese's insanely expensive short The Audition, which stars Robert De Niro, Brad Pit, and Leonardo DiCaprio. In addition, there is the animated film Anomalisa, directed by Charlie Kaufman and Duke Johnson, which successfully Kickstarted $406,237 in September 2012, and is now appearing in both Toronto and Venice three years later.
