2016 / Italy


June 7th, 2016 | 18:00
Florence, Italy

The 5th annual Traveling Shorts Film Festival took place at the entrance to the cultural heart of Florence: at Palazzina Reale near the Santa Maria Novella Train Station. For the second year in a row, we partnered with the TGS Symposium event, which showcases powerful Ted-style talks about relevant issues in Italy. These two events aligned in theme with Outsiders & Outliers, a fitting focus for the spirit of the times.
