dispàrte is an independent film production company founded in Rome in 2015 by Alessandro Amato and Luigi Chimienti. Our mission is to give voice and image to emerging talents, focusing on characters driven stories and international art-house co-productions.

In Italian our name means “apart” and stems from the need to move away, not only geographically, but also working out of the chorus on projects we love to give shape to a professional and creative company with a unique voice.
