R101 is the official radio station of the 69th Venice International Film Festival at the Venice Biennale, which opened today and will run until 8 September 2012.
For the entire duration of the event R101 will offer exclusive radio encounters, from the Radiocall location, with the delegations of all the films in competition. Guido Bagatta, live from the studio set up in the Lancia Café, will give an account of all the excitement of great international cinema, during the programme aired every day from 12 to 1 pm and from 6 to 7 pm. There will be background information and curiosities from the Festival, as well as news previews and interviews with the stars on the red carpet. All video content, images and services will be available on R101’s web tv at www.r101.it.
Thanks to this collaboration R101 will be at the heart of an event of worldwide importance, with the aim of actively contributing to making the magical world of cinema even more spectacular. R101 will be the official ‘voice’ of the Venice Film Festival, covering the events and personalities with the emotional and ironic approach that characterises the radio’s style.
