Given how smoothly things have been running this year, with fewer titles and more screenings, I asked Barbera if he thought the festival would maintain these sorts of levels. Should he return next year (his mandate is up after this edition and we’ll know in October if he’s coming back), Barbera said the 55-60 range is ideal so all films have the chance to be seen rather than people “having the feeling of missing something” if they have to choose because screening times overlap. … [Read more...] about What’s The Price Tag On Venice Film Festival’s COVID Sanitary Protocols & Adjustments?
