ⓘ 10th Venice International Film Festival (1942)

The "10th" annual Venice International Film Festival was held from 30 August to 5 September 1942. Together with the 1940 and 1941 it is considered void- as if they did not happen. The events were hosted at places far away from the Lido and very few countries participated due to World War II and directors that were members of the Rome-Berlin axis. Additionally, a strong fascist political meddling from the Italian fascist government under Benito Mussolini had led to Italy experiencing a period of cultural depression oppressed by fascist propaganda. It is the last edition before the suspension for the Second World War.
