Umbrian Film Festival

8th July 2008 saw the start of the 12th Umbrian Film Festival in Montone, the small village in the Upper Tiber Valley played host to a number of films from around the world until the 13th July. One of the highlights of this years festival was the presentation of a gift of the keys of Montone to Peter Lord, well known and respected in the cinematic world.

Terry Gillam of Monty Python, Baron Munchausen and Life of Brian fame is one of the leading lights of the society, to whom I sold a house several years ago in the village of Morra some 10Km up the road.
