Una Domenica in Campagna

This edition of A SUNDAY IN THE COUNTRY took ten participants from eight different countries to the Casa Rossa, a former farm house turned into holiday home in the Italian countryside.

Here, they were welcomed by host Manfredi Lucibello (director, Italy), two dogs and EFA Members Jukka-Pekka Laakso (managing director, Tampere Film Festival, Finland) and Rebecca O'Brien (Producer, UK) to screen and discuss their films in informal surroundings.

Situated close to Pisa in Tuscany, the encounter kicked off with a walk to the neighbouring bird sanctuary, and included a cooking class to learn how to make your own pasta and an excursion to the city of Pisa and the Manifatture Digitale Cinema. As always, however, the main focus was on watching each other's films, talking about them, and on building up an international network.

The participants were:
Ana-Maria Comanescu
Ása Helga Hjörleifsdóttir
Elettra Fiumi
Emanuela Mascherini
Hristo Simeonov
Karoline Lyngbye
Marko Djordjevic
Sarah Hirtt
