  • Thank you for the exciting news that my stage play «Eleno» was awarded a prize at the Festival! I'm sure to submit again here!

  • Napoleon is a historical figure who, more than 200 years after his death, still arouses curiosity around the world and fully justifies the existence of a Festival in his honor.
    Thank you David Serero for this wonderful idea. I wish you the best of luck for future editions.

    On12/03 I just happened to see this Festival listed on Film Freeway and submitted my screenplay "A Siren's Sweet Whisper." Two days later they notified me my screenplay had been selected. I am most grateful for their quickness and am so pleased they are preserving the past.
