"The three short films are extraordinary and we have a film from Spain called 'A song' which is a surprising beautiful little film, full of values and I think it's a film that the press will like.”

The Catholic Film Festival was created by the Polish film-maker and producer Liana Marabini. It operates under the patronage of the Pontifical Council for Culture which is presided over by Cardinal Ravassi.

"The purpose is to put together, to give more visibility to the filmmakers but also the producers, writers, distributors, broadcasters of Catholic films in general. I think its very important this fact.”

Rome will play host to many of the directors, actors, and producers of the 1,000 movies that were considered. During the festival, a panel of five judges will decide the winners from each category.

Along with the festival, Catholic filmmakers plan to work with the New Evangelization by holding a congress every 6 weeks in a different city to promote their work. It will begin in Rome on July first, traveling through Europe and the Americas, visiting a total of 10 different cities.
