After the success of the second year, here is the third edition of the International Catholic Film Festival, which will take place from Monday, 2nd July to Thursday, 5th July 2012 in Rome.
The event started with the intention of giving space to producers and filmmakers, documentaries, docu-fiction, TV series, short films and programs that promote universal moral values and positive models.
The films in competition have a common element: they promote universal moral values and positive models. The list will be presented during the press conference.
The Mission of the Festival
The International Catholic Film Festival is independent, conceived and created by Liana Marabini, under the high patronage of the Pontifical Council for Culture, and aims to show the Church from a new perspective: glamour and tradition at the same time.
Mirabile Dictu (Wonderful to Relate, in Latin) is a privileged place of encounter for actors, directors, and film makers, gathered by the concern they may have for the history and the values of the Church.
The President of the Festival, Liana Marabini, is a producer, director and publisher. She consecrates her work to the history of the Church, and is particularly concerned by the religious language and communication, something that emerges in the films she produces and the books she publishes.
The prize of the festival, “Il Pesce d’Argento” (The Silver Fish, in Italian), is inspired by the first Christian symbol.
The Opening Event of the Festival
This year, the extraordinary opening event of the Festival will be the Italian première of a remarkable film:
Una donna di nome Maria
(A Woman Called Mary)
by Robert Hossein
