“It is an honour for me to take part in an event as prestigious as the Rome Film Festival. The director’s invitation both flattered and thrilled me, I knew instantly that this was a unique event, a rich and engaging programme – said Nicoletta Romanoff. This is a special edition that calls upon the public to participate at a time in which cinema really needs audiences to be involved. The people’s choice vote reveals the essence of the event, and furthermore demonstrates the essential role of the movie-goer as an active player in this magical world which I love so deeply”.
