Australian filmmakers Amiel Courtin-Wilson and Michael Cody will not only have their new film, Ruin, in the Venice Festival's Orizzonti (Horizons) section—where their previous feature, Hail, had world premiered in 2011—Ruin (pictured) will be part of the festival's Web program, which was inaugurated last year. Twelve feature-length films from the Orizzonti section and three feature-length films from the new Biennale College – Cinema constitute the Web Theatre programme at the festival's landmark 70th edition. The films will be available for viewing around the world, streaming concurrently with the official screenings on the Lido (28 August – 7 September 2013).

The Web Theatre will have a maximum seating capacity for each showing of 500 seats. There will be one screening only for each of the films and it will be located on a secure site managed by Festival Scope.

The sale of digital tickets is already open on the Biennale website. In order to view the film of choice, you must first register on the website and then pay for the ticket (4 euro), after which you will receive a personal link that will be good for one viewing only. Each film (in the original version with English subtitles) will be available for viewing in streaming within 24 hours starting at 9:00 pm (Italian time) on the day of the film's official presentation on the Lido.
