Watch Now: Short Films from the Filmfort Film Festival

Filmmaker is happy to partner with the Filmfort Film Festival, part of the Treefort Music Fest, by exclusively hosting selections from their online showcase. These films will stream exclusively here on the site through Saturday. This year five films travel from the caves of Italy to interior mindscapes to places in between.

Nestled among the cliffs of Italy’s Adriatic coast lies a series of man-made caves, carved over generations by a group of fishermen known as the “Grottaroli.” Every morning a remaining handful of them, now in their 70s and 80s, descend steep paths to their caves to continue their craft. Down there, the sound of the waves becomes one with the ticking of time, as the last of the grottaroli reflect on their love for the sea.
