The Nostalgist wins international prizes!

Great news! It was a great summer for the sci-fi short movie "The Nostalgist" , which has been awarded with the "Best Short Film" prize at the Giffoni Film Festival 2014 (category "Generator +18") and with a second place at the Palm Springs International ShortFest, in Los Angeles, in the "Best live-action short" section.
In addition, the film will be premiered for the first time in Austin, Texas, at the Fantastic Fest 2014, in the section "Fantastic Shorts"
Last but not least, we can see it soon here in London, since The Nostalgist will be in the official selection at the upcoming edition of the BFI London Film Festival, on October, the 11th and the 13th  as part of the "Take me to the other side" programme.
Good luck and all the best to the director, Giacomo Cimini, and to all the cast and crew who has made possible this amazing success.
