08/03/2012 - Selected short movies' list

The list of the selected short movies for the screening at Skepto International Film Festival 2012 is available since today !

We'd like to congratulate the selected films' authors, but also to thank heartily all the filmmakers who sent their works to us. This year we received many short movies, with a very high overall quality level, and it was often difficult to make a selection: we had to reluctantly rule out several good movies, because our festival is still a small one and the time and space at our disposal are still very limited. Anyway, we hope that you will keep on following us and that Skepto International Film Festival will continue to grow up in the next editions, also with your support!
