  • It was a great joy to participate with the film, "Your Mother Doesn't Have to Know This", together with the actors Viorica Vodă, Lucian Arhire, Irina Cocea and Simon Salca jr at this very important Festival in Asti, Italy, which took place at the Alfieri Theater (December 14 - 18, 2021)
    A welcoming, culture-loving city, which also has a Film Festival, which makes it even more representative worldwide.
    The big surprise came at the end of the Festival, when we were announced that we had won the Special Audience Award (Sezione „ASTI SHORT”).
    Many thanks to the organizers, the director Ricardo Costa and his assistant, Fabio Condemi, but also to the wonderful audience from Asti.
