YFtR to screen in Bologna Italy

Your Friend the Rat is screening as part of the Future Film Festival in beautiful, sunny Bologna, Italy. This is on Saturday January the 19th at 7 PM. After the screening, I am giving a, hopefully coherent, talk about the making of the short and take questions. So if you find yourself in Bologna come by and say "hey". Also, being shown is Gary Rydstrom's "Lifted" on Thursday the 18th with a talk by Mark Holmes Lifted's production designer.

Hey Jim,

just dropping a line to say hi and hope you enjoyed your stay in Bologna. How did you find the weather there? I almost decided to come over on saturday but then it got so foggy that it would have been crazy to hit the road in those conditions... Next time!
Happy return to San Francisco and speak to you soon ;)

Hi Jim!

I was in Bologna at FFF!

I was the guy that, at the end of your presentation, asked about Leo...
Do you remember me [please, say yes ;)] ?

Good luck for your job,

Giuseppe aka Giopione
