As for the independent and parallel sidebar, Alice nella città, the jury, made up of 21 teens between 14 and 18 years of age, granted the Award for Best Film in the Young/Adult competition to The Road Within by American director and writer Gren Wells, while the Special Jury Award went to Trash (Daldry’s film was screened in collaboration with the Gala section).

The ninth edition of the Rome Film Festival, the last to be hosted by Marco Müller (his three year mandate ends in December), recorded 80,000 admissions, as well as the 24,500 for Alice nella città. The outgoing artistic director will go back to teaching at university, in Switzerland. “All I can do is to regard this experience, from which I’ve learned so much, as complete”, said Müller thanking everyone and saying his goodbyes, “farewell Rome, farewell Italy”.
