Bolzano ShortFilmFestival 2008

This post is in part in Italian and English because some of it has been copied from the press release, the Bolzano Short Film Festival is open again for entries. Last year I sent them "60 Second Relief" and "The Film that John Lennon couldn't make" but perhaps I was not the Italian Stallion enough to impress, possibly I was too much the Welsh Leek, or Portuguese Tart. This is all beside the point, but if I continuously tell you how many festivals I get rejected from perhaps it can only endeavor to boost your self-esteem and make you feel better.

There are three sections to the Bolzano Short Film Festival, last year I think there were only two. The first is Opere Nuove, which is the general section I believe, No Words is as it says is film that uses music, sound etc but I think this is where I made my mistake as my films contain text, and lastly ShortFilm Experiment where entrants can have work displayed through-out the festival in an exhibition format on large displays.
