The Sole Luna Doc Film Festival, which had its debut in 2006 in Palermo, is now into its twelfth edition.
It is an event that, through the cinema of reality, is able to unite and promote the encounter between people, ideas, perspectives, and looks through the art-house documentaries, and bring to the attention of a wider audience original and courageous points of view on known or little known reality.
The festival will take place from July 2nd to 8th, 2018 in Santa Maria dello Spasimo in the heart of the city of Palermo.
