    It is rare these days to find a film festival that is so well-run and fantastic. Even though I couldn't attend the festival, I had an amazing experience with the TTFF team. From the warm message of my film selection, close communication about schedules etc., everything was excellent. We were so pleased for the possibility to present our film "Maka" at the Cinema Lumiere in Bologna, and honored to have received the Giuria Coop Alleanza 3.0 – “Voci di donne invisibili” Prize. This is the way a film festival should be, I highly recommend it.

  • We had the honor to participate with our film STALKING CHERNOBYL as part of the Objective 2030: Eco-sustainable Planet, to investigate the connection between the environment and society. Thank you Terra di Tutti Film Festival for sharing the stories at the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone with this emerging sub culture, and for raising awareness on the devastating effects of nuclear energy.
    Looking forward to submitting more of our work at the next edition :)
