February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California).

LIANA MARABINI
President of Film Festival 
"We're looking for heroes, stories of faith and hope, especially now because society needs hope.” 

The finalists include pieces from six countries, four of them from the U.S. Individual categories include best interpretation and best director. In fact, ROME REPORTS is nominated for best director for its documentary on the life of St. Therese of Lisieux, titled 'The Secret of Therese.”

There's also a so called 'special prize' which will be granted to a documentary film titled 'Madonna del Parto.' 

LIANA MARABINI
President of Film Festival 
"Madonna del Parto is actually painted on the walls of a parish in Tuscany. This film delves into the story of the patrons who saved this painting. They carried out an exceptional restoration.” 

The goal of the festival is to promote Catholic films and ease their entry into mass international platforms. The winners will be announced on June 25th.
