The best of this Festival is the presence of the great director of film photography Vittorio Storaro – the Winner of the “Golden Camera 300” Award for Life Achievement, and at the same time, the President of the International Jury of the Festival

The real refreshment was the short-footage film selection: charming, lucid, technically greatly made.
