  • Keith Harris

    Review for 'She's An Instagram Model' by Keith Orlando Harris. Thank you so much to the Rome Movie Awards for granting my music video an award. It's an honor to receive an award from a city that I truly love and adore. To know that my music video has a place there is amazing and humbling. Since the debut of my music video on the film festival circuit, it's received 19 awards. I'm grateful that Rome Movie Awards could be a part of that. Thank you so much.

  • 8 and HalfilmA wards in Rome -Festival Director Valentina Lumi (just one month later: Although I was QUALIFIED and I live in Rome, I had asked to participate in the screenings and was denied. Same thing at the ROME FILM AWARD they are affiliated with: SAME PLACE for screnings in 2 days for both Festival. They said ON THEIR WEBSITE: “Life is a party! Let's live it together ". Ridiculous and arrogant. Their director MICHELE DIOMA who does not invite the qualified who live in Rome - Arrogant people : HE CALL ME IN PRIVATE CALL --- THE MOST EXPENSIVE FILMFREEWAY FESTIVALS AROUND THE WORLD
