Upated on :April 20, 2014

Shiva Sadegh Asadi’s “The kitten” was showcased in the 12th Reggio Film Festival which was held on October 2nd to 7th, 2013 in Reggio Emilia, Italy. Participation of almost 1200 films made the 12th edition of the festival a very high level program which opened on October 2nd with two days focused on Bosnia and Herzegovina with screenings and panels.

Hundreds of short film from all the continents, famous guests, meeting to study in deep interesting matters related to the short film or to the theme of that edition and big audience are the elements of the Reggio Film Festival. A winning formula that is renewed year after year, an important appointment for Reggio Emilia but well known even out of region borders.

The program featured debates on RED in cinema; the future of movies in the digital era, a night dedicated to Gruppo 63 poetry group and of course the short movies.

Many of websites, specialized magazines or newspapers that every year report detailed info regarding the festival, organized by a staff of volunteers every year more numerous and eager. The main target of this festival is to inspire interest and appreciation for the operas of filmmakers that send their short film from every part of the world, and at the same time to create occasions for cultural investigations that develop the cinematographic learning and the theme of the year.

So starting from the 1st edition the Reggio Film Festival is distinguished every year by the choice of a theme, a topic that is examined and developed using different languages, so not only by the point of view of the short films but also through music, plays, words and other artistic expressions.

In this way the chosen theme is used not only to create a section to group some of the screened short films, but also a way to go in deep and to involve the audience.
