If you are ready to sit through a film in a language that is not yours, it means you have boundless passion for cinema. The Alpe Adria Festival held every January at the Miela Theatre in Trieste is one of the most appreciated film festivals of its kind in Europe. For around a week, short and full-length films made and produced in Eastern Europe are shown. These films were not made for the cinema, of course, but are snapshots of what is often the tragic situation these countries are forced to endure which, in this way, can be shown to the rest of the world. Some of the films are dubbed into Italian or English. Watched by a young audience, the festival is also liked by film critics and is accompanied by public discussions and meetings with writers, directors and Italian and foreign intellectuals.
