"Dear friends,

our event in Bardonecchia is over. We are rather satisfied: the results we achieved repay our commitment:

  • 24 projects submitted by filmmakers and producers from all over Europe and more, discussed by a surprising panel and a great audience of professionals.

  • 32 international guests, among producers, distributors, commissioning editors and film commissions.

  • 5 movies that made us think, laugh, discuss and showed us that 'we can do it!'

  • 2084 (and growing) followed us on facebook.......

We were more than 130 in Bardonecchia, but we have not lost the family atmosphere that distinguishes us. and that we hope you appreciated. What convinces me every year to organize the event are those that, like you, come to meet, exchange and develop new ideas. And this is why I want to thank you every one of you for coming.

Now we need to look to the future, and I hope the future of Documentary in Europe and yours, will still bump into one another..

Keep in touch!"
