The Cisterna Film Festival is now in collaboration with the Santa Marinella Film Festival, which will be held in Santa Marinella (Rome) in August, 18- 25, within the Istituto Comprensivo, in via Aurelia, 276. As usual, every evening of Santa Marinella Film Festival will have the screening of a film by an emerging director, preceded by an Italian short film. Four of the short films projected in this edition were screened at the Cisterna Film Festival between 2017 and 2018: Vanillaby Rossella Inglese (August, 18), Il tratto by Alessandro Stevanon (August, 21), Futuro Prossimo by Salvatore Mereu (August, 22) and Fantassút – Rain on the borders by Federica Foglia (August, 24). Furthermore, the new short film directed by our artistic director Cristian Scardigno, entitled Nel suo mondo will open the third day of the festival.

We couldn’t help but give our contribution to this event which has come to its XIV edition, and we would like to thank the artistic director Ernesto Nicosia and our friend Catello Masullo, present at CFF last year as a juror, for asking us to be there.

This is the third partnership of 2018, together with the one with the Irish Film Festa, thanks to which the Focus On section was born, and the one with the Civitanova Film Festival, which artistic directors Peppe Barbera and Michele Fofi were in the jury of our last edition.
