    A great festival with a unique selection. We were honored to be part of the official selection and to be able to screen our experimental moving art short "Slightly Suprematic". Pandemic restrictions allowed us to attend the festival only by proxy, but we definitely will be back, this time in person!

    Buongiorno Deniz, l'evento è stato rinviato causa pandemia Covid in modo da garantire la realizzazione alla presenza del pubblico e degli artisti. In questi giorni decideremo la collocazione definitiva. Cordiali saluti

  • Thank you for Awarding me the Prima Cosa Bella Award for International films. It is a wonderful Festival! Asti Film Festival has been great in terms of communication, as well as of the organization. My film had a great screening. Sorry that I couldn't come to the screening nor to the Ceremony and the gala due to the Israeli Premiere of the film on the same day and week. But there was a live feed on Facebook and I've watched it.
    I've seen videos and pictures of the final evening and It has been a beautiful ceremony. for me as Director and producer of the film THE COMPOSER it was an awesome experience. The award sent by carrier to my home after the Covid-19 outbreak and it came safe.
    THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!! Riccardo, the staff and the Jurors of the festival, We hope to see you soon with our next films in your next edition.
