"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.

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.
