3rd Rome International Film Festival Award Winners

One of my friends asked me why didn’t I posted news about this festival and I answered because there was nothing noteworthy happening in this festival that was plagued with political –Italian style- rumbles before started and during the fest news were scarce even at their official site. I know it’s a relatively new fest and I hope that next year they learned many lessons from this year.

Anyway the fest closed yesterday and here are the award winners.
