  • Orgoglioso per la selezione in questo stupendo Festival.

  • Tutto molto strano. L'edizione non è stata fatta in presenza senza alcuna spiegazione in merito. Inoltre non sono stati assegnati i premi (annunciati sul sito e qui) per attore, attrice e regista. Eravamo contenti di essere stati selezionati, ma alla fine tutto si è risolto in un paio di foto su instagram.
