Chi siamo

In 2012, after nearly 18 years of collaborations as a festival programmer with festivals such as the International Film Critics Week (the independent section of the Venice Film Festival devoted to first time directors and their debut films) and the Trieste Film Festival (the leading Italian festival devoted to film productions from Central and Eastern Europe), Nicoletta Romeo decided to capitalise her long-standing film festival experience as well as her film knowledge and created the film production company Mansarda Production Srl, together with Thanos Anastopoulos and Roberto Romeo, based in Trieste, Italy.
