Rome’s MAXXI, or National Museum of the 21st-century arts, goes beyond art exhibits: it also hosts winter screenings of family-friendly flicks, documentaries, new releases, foreign and short films, and auteur works.
The proposals for this edition:
EXTRA DOC FESTIVAL: Italian documentary competition
