Francesca Floris, Pietro Jellinek and Davide Petrosino

Directors, Producers, and Writers

Francesca Floris (Oristano, 1992) is a photographer and filmmaker with previous work experience in fields as theatre and music. Francesca was part of the Venice Film Festival Youth Jury during the 67th edition of the event. She moved to London in 2011, to attend Brunel University. After graduation, she made her first documentary film, “Islands” (2014). In September 2014, Francesca moved to the US for a year to study Media Management at The New School in New York. In December 2018, she graduated from the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia in Rome. Two of the short films she produced during her studies at CSC were selected for the Venice International Film Critics’ Week, two for Camerimage and one for Cortinametraggio. From 2017 to 2021, Francesca studied and graduated in Visual Anthropology (master’s degree) at the University of Siena, while working in the field of animation and VFX. “The World of Las” (2019) is her first official publication. At the moment, Francesca is working on two animation projects: a short film and a script for a feature film.

Pietro Jellinek was born in 1993 in Milan, Italy. He attended a German School, which allowed him to grow under the influence of two different cultures. He then attended a High School for Classical Studies and later graduated in Management at Bocconi University. In 2016, he moved to Rome, where he graduated in Film Producing at Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia. Pietro has worked – in the summer of 2015 – for two different production companies in Los Angeles, where he has fallen in love with the script development aspect of producing a movie. This awoke in him the fascination for writing he had always had. At the moment, Pietro is working on his first feature film script. Among the short films he produced, there are: “La Peste” by Tommaso Frangini (Cannes Short Film Corner), “Fino Alla Fine” by Giovanni Dota (Venice International Film Critics’ Week), “Il Ricordo Di Domani” by Davide Petrosino (Camerimage), and “Finis Terrae” by Tommaso Frangini, shot in LA and currently in post-production.

Davide Petrosino was born in Nocera Inferiore on the 21st of February 1993. His love for cinema begins at the Giffoni Film Festival, where he was part of the jury for seven years (from 2006 to 2013). In 2008 he was on the jury of the Hamedan Film Festival, a prestigious Iranian festival for children and young adults. In 2015 he graduated with honors in Cinema, Television & New Media at Roma Tre University. In 2018, he graduated in Film Directing at the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia in Rome. In 2019, he won the “Best Director” prize at Fiumicino Film Festival with his short film “La Cage”. His graduation short film, “Memories of Tomorrow”, was selected by several film festivals in Italy and abroad, including the prestigious Camerimage Festival (Poland). A year after his degree, CSC called him back to shoot “A Couple”, a short film produced by CSC Production. At the moment, Davide is working on two personal projects (a feature film and a documentary).
