Cyprus Film Days International Festival, the largest international film event in Cyprus dedicated exclusively to contemporary world cinema and fiction feature length films, continues for its 16th consecutive year.
Acclaimed Italian origin film director Abel Ferrara will be present as the head of the Jury, while also presenting a masterclass and a screening of his film PIAZZA VITTORIO.
Piazza Vittorio is the largest Roman square and home to people from different communities, but also to great directors. A surreal day comes out with interviews with illegal immigrants, clochards, artists, business owners and politicians, who narrate not just the story of a square, but the story of a country in transition.
