Krystin Pellerin – Best Actress  |  Touch – Best International Film

The Artistic Director of the 2017 Visioni Corte International Short Film Festival, Gisella Calabrese, in her Italian-to-English translation.


For the ability to perform in an intense and suffered way a woman who, placed between two fires, makes a choice that struggles with her, finding perhaps an emotional bond that has now been lost, with dignity and deep sensitivity.


For the ability to tell in a few words, but with the sensitivity of the images, the interpretation of the actors and their gestures a deep story of love and pain, difficulty and forgiveness. An analysis of the human soul on tiptoe with sentiment, respect and a final shot.

Touch was one of twenty-three finalists selected by the jury to screen in the International Fiction section. Among other films in this section was the 2017 Oscar Winner for Best Live Action Short, Sing.
