  • “I was delighted to be
    selected to the Mediterranean Film Festival of Cannes.
    I learned a lot from this experience and I am grateful
    to the organizers of the Festival for their feedback on my work. Moreover, during all days of the Festival, I had the
    opportunity of meeting many experienced film
    makers from all around the world. They all were
    more experienced than me and I was happy to
    confront my ideas with them. I enjoyed their
    company, we had different social moments in which
    to reflect on our own practices and share knowledge
    on film making. I hope I keep contact with them in the
    future and I wish all the them a brilliant career.”
