About us

C’è was founded in January 2014 through the initiative of Raffaele Buranelli and Karin Proia, with the desire to produce works that combine originality and interest to a wider audience; in order to arouse the attention of the more aware viewer as of the one who is looking mainly for recreation or emotions.

C’è also sees in the film and in audiovisual an important opportunity of communication and of growth of personal and collective awareness. It intends, therefore, to convey through its productions, in various forms, content and initiatives of sensitization, solidarity and prevention in favor of social consciousness and the community.
