  • Nn ci è piaciuto che a parità di cortometraggi in gara nella stessa sezione, alcuni autori/registi hanno avuto più visibilità rispetto ad altri.

    Catania Film Fest offers a fabulous, film-loving setting, where truly independent films are presented. Thank you very much, dear Catania Film Fest team, for including our European short film 'Shadow Players' in your official selection!

    Because of covid 19 the festival could not take place on his date. The communication with the festival was excellent. I would be very happy if the festival could be caught up later and I could present Sun Shine Moon in Catania.
