WWW {the whale who wasn't} at Encounters Film Festival

It’s been a while since I have created a news post for a festival selection - usually I just update the “upcoming screenings” section. However, I think the selection of WWW {the whale who wasn’t} at Encounters Film Festival (Bristol, UK) deserves its own post. I am very excited to announce that the science fiction short will be playing on Thu, Sep 26th, 8:00 PM @ Watershed - Cinema 1 in Bristol, England. Tickets can be ordered here.


Conference in Bologna - Animated Cinema of Propaganda

Alessia will be one of the guest speakers at a conference organized by the Future Film Festival (Bologna, Italy).

Don’t miss it if you happen to be in Bologna! The event will take place in Via San Vitale, 65 at 6pm on 4/25.
