“Mirabile Dictu”: International Catholic Film Festival kicks off

(Vatican Radio) Mirabile Dictu in Latin means “something wonderful to tell”. And that’s exactly what the organisers of the “Mirabile Dictu” International Catholic Film Festival want to do: tell film-goers the wonderful Christian message.

Using the power of film, evangelization is at the heart of its mission.The Rome-based festival, at its 4th edition (from 24 to 26 June), awards five prizes to films and actors competing in different categories, plus a special prize to French actress Marie-Christine Barrault for her remarkable career.
