We’re thrilledto share the news that Rose: A Love Story is screening at this year’s Trieste Science+Fiction Festival and is a part of their Silver Méliès competition for best European film.

Trieste Science+Fiction Festival was founded in 2000 under the name of Science plus Fiction by the Research and Experimentation Centre La Cappella Underground with the ambitious purpose of re-launching the Festival Internazionale del film di fantascienza (International Science Fiction Film Festival), which had been held in the northern Italian city of Trieste in the years 1963–1982.

It is a multidisciplinary event devotedto the realms of the “fantastic”,to experimental languages and new technologies in cinema, television, and the visual arts. Todd Brown describes it as “not just one of the world’s leading science-fiction festivals”, but “one of the finest genre events in the world regardless of the genre in question”, while Dan Jolin lists it as one of the “14 captivating film festivals in Europe you won’t wantto miss”.

Rose: A Love Story was nominated for the Raindance Discovery Award at the BIFA’s in 2020 and stars Sophie Rundle, Matt Stokoe and Olive Gray.
