, Speaking to the media on Wednesday, Moore mused that while most discussions “about the future of cinema” tend to focus on the film business, “it’s more about what’s being created” and the stories being told . “For me, that’s what Venice is all about, [it’s a] chance to see all these incredible pieces.”
