Third edition winner 

Bo film is a creative enterprise that produces and broadcasts documentaries to raise awareness of issues mostly concerning social and current affairs.

Bo film works alongside writers and directors during the development and production stages of audio-visual products. It also distributes them on the international market, sometimes with the support of national and international distributors and sales agents.

The company increased its market presence through collaborations and co-productions with foreign companies, with the support of several international funding bodies and through the cultural acclaim that resulted from their successes at various festivals.
After having been broadcast by cultural channels, films produced by Bo Film have been purchased by both Italian and foreign television channels (Sky ARTE HD, RAI, Press TV). This has allowed for a large diverse and international audience.
