It’s been 2 weeks now that I have returned from Locarno… An amazing experience, an amazing festival and amazing organisers! DEAD END was nominated for the Golden Pardino- Leopards of tomorrow! No wins but such a nomination is definitely significant and I am proud of it!
On the day of DEAD END’s world premiere (13th August 2013) the Head of Pardi di Domani, Alessandro Massioni, took myself and the other filmmakers whose films premiered on the same day to an official lunch, told us how much he likes our films (which was such an honour), had some official photos taken for the Festival and then around 2 pm drove us to La Sala Theatre where 950 viewers were waiting to watch our films… After a brief introduction by Alessandro, we each had to say a few words and then the screenings started… We were all so stressed! The audience’s feedback was very positive… It was a beautiful day!
