Biography

Mattia Colombo earned a BFA in Painting at Academy of Fine Arts in Firenze in 2007 and a MFA in Documentary Filmmaking from IED Venezia in 2009. My first short documentary film IL VELO, enchanted tale about a little nuns community, has been selected in international festivals Visions du Réel (Nyon), EIFF Edinburgh International Film Festival (Edinburgh), AFI Silverdocs Discovery (Washington), Dialektus Film Festival (Budapest) e XI Circuito Off (Venice), where it won Best Short film Award (Veneto in Short) and RTP2 – Onda Curta Award (purchase award of Portuguese television). IL PENSIERO DELLA MANO is a visual poem on life that flows among artisans, on passion, on the future of work, and has been realized under the supervision of directors Silvio Soldini and Bruno Oliviero during the Design Festival. IL DESIDERIO is an experiment and a proof of resistance: it has been thought, filmed and edited in five days, on Basilicata mountains, during an international workshop with the director Michelangelo Frammartino. His first long film documentary was IL PASSO, followed by TREES THAT WALK. His latest film is VOGLIO DORMIRE CON TE and it premiered at Cinéma du Réel.
