The 70th Venice International Film Festival got underway on Wednesday and has already given film critics and celeb spotters plenty of excitement. Here are some of the best images from the festival so far.

It might not quite have the glamour or influence of Cannes, but there has already been plenty to talk about at this year's Venice Film Festival, which got underway on Wednesday, August 28th.

Highlights so far include the space thriller “Gravity”, starring George Clooney and Sandra Bullock, and “Tracks”, based on the true storey of Robyn Davidson, played by Mia Wasikowska, who trekked 2,000 miles across the Australian desert in 1975.

US director William Friedkin has already been awarded the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement, while this year’s festival jury is headed by 73-year-old Italian director Bernardo Bertolucci, whose films include Last Tango in Paris and The Last Emperor.

Below are some of the best pictures from the festival so far.
