Besides My Mom Is a Foreigner, but Not to Me (2013), she has also written several other children’s books.
Venetian Film Festival: what is its purpose?
Taking place on the picturesque island of Lido, off mainland Venice, the Festival, the oldest in the world, even predating Cannes, is the oldest film festival in the world. It was once thought to be a platform for fascist cinema, but under the direction of Marco Mueller and Alberto Barbera, Venice has become a showcase for some of the best films made in recent years. A number of these films have been nominated for and even won Oscars.
As part of the 78th Venice International Film Festival, La Biennale di Venezia is organizing the event under the direction of Alberto Barbera. The event took place at Venice Lido from September 1 to 11, 2021.
Moore has a variety of qualities that are undeniably different from others. It is obvious that she is a very competent person. What do you think of her as head of the Venice Film Festival jury this year? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.
