Poetry reading at the Göteborgs Stadsbibliotek

It was very exciting to participate in the poetry festival organized by the Macedonian National Association together with the Gothenburg City Library yesterday!
So embarrassing that I couldn’t read my poem without getting so moved, but it is a very emotional text for me.
Wonderful audience and colleagues, I am so proud and happy that I accepted this invitation!

“The Wedding Cake” at the Falvaterra FF!

The Wedding Cake selected by the Falvaterra Film Festival, a very nice new festival in a charming town south of Rome that will take place at the end of July! I am very glad for this selection and it would be great to reach to the final!

An annual grant from the Swedish Authors’ Fund!

I am surprised and moved that the Commission for the Sveriges Författarfond (Swedish Writers’ Fund) has judged me worthy of an annual literature fund! My new novel “Klara” will be ready in both Italian and Swedish this autumn!

Festival Number 80 for “The Wedding Cake”!

I have not submitted The Wedding Cake to new festivals since a while – feeling very satisfied about my results so far! – but a friend really wanted me to go for a very special one that has a magical aura, the LIFE AFTER OIL International Film Festival holding its 9th edition in September this year. I am totally thrilled that they selected my film and I can’t wait to see how the Sardinian audience will receive it!

In fact, it will be my premiere on Sardinia, and I will do all possible to be there in person! It is a big celebration also because with LIFE AFTER OIL IFF The Wedding Cake reaches eighty festival selections! I feel incredibly proud and I want to celebrate in person in the small town of Villanovaforru on 20-24 September. Continue reading

“The Wedding Cake” screened one year after at the Doc.London!

As I announced last year, The Doc.London Documentary Film Festival selected The Wedding Cake for the 2021 festival, but due to the COVID-19 situation the screening was postponed to the 2022 edition.

So, it is now due for next Monday March 28th from 8-10 pm, a week from today, at the Close-Up Film Centre in 97 Sclater Street, London, but unfortunately/fortunately the event is sold out already! Reserving tickets for this screening is no longer possible, but some more tickets will free up at the front desk on the evening of the screening.

I feel very sad for not attending, but hopefully my super amazing set designer Adriana Rosati will be there to catch the festival vibes for me!

“The Wedding Cake” at Cortincarcere!

I feel so excited and honored that The Wedding Cake, in addition to being a finalist at the Social Film Festival ArTelesia last year, continues its path inside the festival through a screening today at the auditorium of the Benevento Prison, as an initiative of the “Cortincarcere” project!
I am really pleased that my short is shown in this context, which is one of the most important possible.
