  • Our film "Death Offers Life - last moments of Vincent Van Gogh" got official selection which is a great encouragement for us. The festival seems to be over in December only.

    Ho ricevuto la notifica di selezione da FilmFreeway ma il mio progetto non è stato incluso nella selezione ufficiale del festival in questione. Ho provato a contattare l'organizzazione per chiedere chiarimenti ma senza ottenere una risposta.
