    The festival took place in Garbatella, a very picturesque neighborhood of Rome. The filmmakers of the selected films had paid stay and dinner during the festival days. The people of the organization were very welcoming and helpful. Following the screening of each film, the director was invited to share some of his experience in making the film. Very prolific. Many thanks to the organization!
