WHO WE ARE
Coffee Time Film is an independent film production company founded in Rimini in 2017 by Kristian Gianfreda in order to enhance the social, human and cultural heritage of Romagna.
Our team involves professionals from the world of associations, volunteers and social cooperatives. In Coffee Time’s DNA there is a focus on the poverty, on diversity, on the paths of social integration: all our works, from fiction features to documentaries, to short films, social promotion and fundraising advertisements are inspired by true life stories.
By its conception, our cinema offers a mirror and a window at the same time: we sometimes contemplate it because it reflects our lives, other times we look inside it because we are curious to see how others are living. The strength of our films is their ability to provoke a sense of belonging to humankind. Our stories are universal. The main challenge is manage to maintain this duplicity at all times: tell about real people and events and excite, involve, make the audience dream.
