“Dignity” at the FICT, Torrelavega International Short Film Festival!

Each time one of my films gets selected to a festival I feel very satisfied, of course, albeit it is obvious that some festivals do have a greater impact then others because of their history, audience, aura.

Among them the FICT (the Torrelavega International Short Festival), that is held from May 20th to June 3rd at the Teatro Municipal Concha Espina in the town of Torrelavega in Cantabria, Northern Spain. A festival with a very long and prestigious tradition, that has gone as far as its 18th edition!

Therefore, I will beg your pardon for feeling some pride in announcing that “Dignity” has been selected to compete this year, and it will be screened on May 29th, at 7 pm.

And I feel very tempted to go!!

“Dignity” winning two awards at the Docs Without Borders Film Festival!

I am really really delighted for this new recognition of my “Dignity”, that just won TWO merit awards at the Docs Without Borders Film Festival in Nassau (USA). One as “Human Spirit Short” – which is particularly important for me – and the second for its “Excellence for Cinematography”. I am extremely pleased that the value of the images filmed with Fabrizio Del Dotto and Darim A. Da Prato, with the aid of Cinzia Bolognini, is acknowledged in its own merit. We were a small but big team that looked with respect and love at the young girls we met thanks to Emanuela Bonavolta. Thank you all once again!
