I am very proud that Dignity was among the few films to obtain the first of them, the “Award of Excellence”.
This morning Dignity, my documentary film, is going to be screened in three schools in central Naples: Sogliano, Ristori and S. Maria di Costantinopoli, before a huge public of over 400 13-years-old students.
I am delighted because apart from film festivals, which are thrilling events, my big goal when making this film was to have teen-agers watching it.
So I am very thankful to Maestro Max Fuschetto who not only gave his music for free to the film, but also managed to organize these huge events today!
Unfortunately, I cannot attend, as I am too far away, but Emanuela Bonavolta, O Viveiro manager, is there with all her usual contagious passion. I am so happy!
The festival is dedicated to social issues so I am extra happy this kind of audience will be able to see the film. I hope it will generate even more attention to my beloved girls.
I am especially glad it did because the festival gives special attention to issues that are very close to my heart, such as LGBT and freethinking. Even though Dignity does not have that hue specifically, I am very honored that a jury with this kind of mind chose it as Best Documentary for the 2016 edition.
I am so happy that Dignity has been also selected for the FECICAM Film Festival that will be held in the Spanish regions of Castilla-La Mancha in March! And because it is the home of the brave Don Quixote, let’s hope this will bring me some luck!
I am so proud that my documentary “Dignity” was selected for the Indonesian International Film Festival for Women, Social Issues and Zero Discrimination this year!
The festival will take place in Jakarta in early March, it would be lovely to go! 🙂
