artistic director and supervision 

My goal with the events I direct is to create a cultural humus that can teach and spread knowledge in today’s short film panorama. At the center of my events I want to have good films, an in-depth debate with the guests and the possibility, for the public, to bring home with them new contents, ideas, messages, aesthetics. Since 2014 the events I curated brought short films from 135+ countries from all around the world to more than 7500 people, gathering more than 15.000 submissions from directors of all ages, styles, genres and budget.
