    WARNING: After 67 emails starting in February 2019 and confirming my film would be screened in the 12/2019 the Rome Film Awards decided not to screen it. No reason was given. I learned this just several weeks before the festival. After paying for travel arrangements to Rome the word “disappointment” doesn’t begin to describe how I felt. Although Fabrizio was good at communicating and more than happy to direct me to other festivals in his World Film Presentation organization, I strongly suggest steering clear of this kind of sketchy unprofessionalism. Take your submittal fee elsewhere.

    It was an honor for me to have the opportunity to be part of this festival with 4 of my short documentaries( " Lost in Berlin, German & Israelis in the labyrinth of Reconciliation", " Girls Soccer beyond Borders" and " Searching for the Meaning of Life" .) I believe in the power and vision of the filmmaker to bridge over cultures and enrich the human experience. I was Lucky to connect with Fabrizio - perfect partner to cooperate with. I could not attend at the festival but I am sure Fabrizio organized it prima. wish to be there next year.

    I am very thrilled to have TWO of my Independent short films, Transgression(s) (starring Grover McCants, and Charlene Jeter); and #Roommates selected as WINNERS in the Rome film Awards.
    Thank-you very much for this high and very esteemed honor. I had a minor communication problem, understanding if my wins qualified me for the year-end Film festival for the entire nation of Italy. Other than that, everything was perfect.
