francesco rufini

Since the beginning of his Bachelor in Anthropology at the University of Bologna, Francesco Rufini started to work at video and photography projects in Sardegna, Spain and Madagascar. In 2015, he shot and co-directed City Of Flies, a short documentary about the life in the dumpsite of Antananarivo, one of Africa’s biggest dumpsites, and worked as a video collaborator for a medical anthropology research about the persistence of the plague in the island. Once concluded the Bachelor’s degree in Anthropology, he went to study abroad and begun an MFA in Film Directing at the Edinburgh College of Art, focusing research studies and interests on ethics and reality in documentary filmmaking. His last short documentary Dogma had its world premiere at the 'Edinburgh International Film Festival 2018' and has been part of other important festivals such as 'Interfilm - International Short Film Festival Berlin', 'Tenerife Shorts' and “Glasgow Short Film Festival”. Francesco is currently working at his first feature length documentary project to be set in an Inuit community in the Nord-du-Quebec region, Canada.
