“I have been following this festival for years and I am very impressed by the work done by Andrea and his collaborators- claimed directror Claudio Gubitosi - and with my deputy Antonia Grimaldi, who is also the person responsible for the shorts in competition, we screened all the films promoted by the event and we must admit that they are all extremely good”.
CortOglobo Film Festival Italian Director Andrea Recussi, claimed that "given the situation and all of the problems I am extremely satisfied with the end result. Thanks to the participation of the "Gatta Cenerentola" director, the Casa Surace team we were able to bring film centre stage in the festival. It's a lot of hard work, especially doing what we fdo in a small town in the middle of nowhere but I have a great team to whom I am extremely grateful. Once we will have wrapped this edition up we will start working on the next one and give it all we got as always".
