Mompeo: a little gem on the beautiful valley of Farfa, immersed in a fairytale land, since 1999 decided to open the doors of its castle and its squares to a genre, the short film, which is showing extraordinary skill of poetry and communication. By bringing together people and cultures often distant from each other, that can understand in the language of brevity.

 

We recall that in recent years The International Short Film Festival in Sabina was attended by authors, filmmakers and fans of the genre from all over the world: the Festival's archive preserves the films produced by young Americans, Russians, Australians, Europeans and Oriental world, that have participated in various editions. Significant also was the presence and participation of schools with a specific section of the competition for the type of productions presented. The winner of the 2011 of the young director Alessio Lauria, "Sotto casa" in recent months has become a case: more than 320,000 views just on Youtube.
