This year we could not interview our international guests in front of the legendary wall of Orvieto Cinema Fest, but this did not stop us from wanting to know and share with you their experiences and views. In a series of online interviews we have been told about the birth of the winning short films for the third edition of the OCF.

Today it’s the turn of Zhenia Kazankina, director of “Rio”, short winner of the Best International category.
