    Esistono tre motivi per cui si partecipa ai festival: uno è la bellezza dei luoghi (ed in questo ho scoperto una città davvero carina ed un bellissimo teatro). Ma poi soprattutto per conoscere persone e contemporaneamente far conoscere i nostri lavori.
    In un festival dove non abbiamo avuto alcuna accoglienza o intervista, non sono stati proiettati i lavori e non c'è stato alcun momento di aggregazione, non trovo motivi validi per cui consiglierei l'esperienza.
    Chiaramente confido che la seconda edizione sarà migliorata e più prestigiosa, ripartendo dagli aspetti positivi, come la qualità della giuria.

    Caro Francesco,
    facciamo tesoro delle note positive e di quelle negative.
    Stiamo lavorando per un grande RSFF 2019.

    Nel dettaglio: I Finalisti di categoria hanno ricevuto tutti, come tu sai, una proposta di proiezione su una importante emittente privata, ed una proposta di distribuzione mondiale con la Shami MG.
    Quanti festival nel mondo fanno questo?

    Per l'accoglienza: ci impegnamo a fare meglio ma non possiamo soprassedere dalle difficoltà avute con il Comune di Rieti.

    Continua a seguirci, grazie.
