Director Biography – Brace Beltempo e Barbara Sirotti (ARIA (AIR))

Brace Beltempo is a Director, Production manager and Director of Photography born in Milan in 1985. He started as a piano player when he was nine, having several experiences with famous singers and musicians.
In 2011 he studied to become a film director and D.O.P. and working for many brands, Movies & Documentaries.
His first film, ‘The Carpenter’s House’, shot in 2015, has been released worldwide. In 2020 the Covid pandemic didn’t prevent him from directing and producing ‘Alice was my name’, a film that talks about one of his most heart-felt topics: violence against women.
Now this very serious and sensitive issue has found a further development into domestic abuses with ‘Aria’, a short film co-created with Barbara Sirotti.

The irony of this festival is that its goal is to not be around in 5 years time. To eventually not be relevant because there is zero need to have a festival geared for female talent and female stories because the stories presented in Hollywood and around the world are a balanced showcase of the human experience from both sexes. Our goal is to achieve a lot of success and then fold into oblivion simply because there is no need for this festival. This festival was created by the FEEDBACK Film & Writing Festival as a simple reaction to a strong need to showcase female talent from around the world in a more profound way. When putting together the weekly festival, the administration noticed a lack of a female presence in the stories being shown at the festival. A classic example and analogy to the frustration is how the festival noticed that even the smaller roles in a screenplay were written for a man to play. There was zero reason for this in many stories. How a police officer, or a political campaign manager, for example with 3-4 lines in a screenplay was a "HE" character. Why? And these are the screenplays written by the winners! The talented one who have obtained agents and have began/beginning their careers as a writer.
