SPECIAL JURY AWARD FOR DIGNITY!!
I made it! So glad I won at the Blue Danube Film Festival! So this is award number 11 🙂
This year I will be again present to my beloved Lecce Film Festival, somehow!
I do not have any new short film to compete with but I am there anyway (albeit only virtually) since I am one of the members of the jury! I have to admit that it has been a lovely and enriching experience even though I must also say that it is really difficult to “judge” someone else’s work.
I hope you can be there, from the 7th to the 10th of December!
Last April Dignity was screened by an amazing film festival in the United States, the “Women In The World” – Women In Media – Newark’s 2017 Women’s History Month Film Festival.
A few days ago the festival directress got in touch with me to ask if I wanted to authorize her to screen “Dignity” during their 16 days of Activism to eliminate Gender-Based Violence initiatives, explaining that my documentary had been among those that had received most appreciation by the audience because “it clearly illustrates the importance of education and hope when facing tremendous odds. We congratulate you for sharing this compelling story with film goers throughout the world, and look forward to screening more of your work with our audiences.”
So do not miss it! East Orange Public Library Monday 4 December at 6:00 PM.
