    What a marvelous film festival. Nights of Contrition couldn't have asked for a better venue for an Italian premiere. Tightly curated program, great staff, and one of the most gorgeous festivals in terms of screening venues in the world. Ortigia is the king of southern Italia!

  • It was Italian premiere of my movie. I could follow day by day on social media. Ambience seemed amazing. Communication was perfect with festival organizers. I'm so happy to be included Ortigia Film Festival this year. I would like to be in Italy during the festival.
