ROME FILM FEST   

#RomaFF12 | Films of our lives

For the third year, the artistic director Antonio Monda and the members of the selection committee – Mario Sesti (artistic coordinator), Richard Peña, Giovanna Fulvi, Alberto Crespi, Francesco Zippel, Valerio Carocci – will offer the audience a brief but suggestive anthology of “films to love”.
Each of them has selected a musical to watch with curiosity and surprise or to experience once again with new awareness. Each member of the selection committee will share the film he has loved with the audience, in an open discussion with authors, actors, and guests.
