Remarks shared after Festival visit


"After making a production, we always want more people to watch it. Thanks to NAE, our short films can travel around the world! It’s so amazing that we’ve got such a chance to go to France to attend my own short film’s screening. Our marketing screening was excellent. During the screening, I took time to reflect and I only looked at my English subtitles and tried to figure out if western audience could understand it. I think it’s a very good reflection whether I should make a universal production or something local for next project.
It was a good idea to have a Q&A session so that we had a chance to meet the audience. Some of them stayed and talked with the directors for one hour! The audience was very passionate and professional. And audiences told me that they loved the colorfulness, the music and the script of my short film which cheered me up a lot.

I’m writing a lot of scripts and I love shooting. As a freelance script writer for feature-length film, this trip sponsored by NAE did inspire me a lot. This opportunity has definitely broadened my horizon. I met some professionals and exchanged contacts. We’ve also got a very warm welcome in Clermont Ferrand. A local association even launched a cocktail party exclusively for us during the festival. It’s an unforgettable cultural exchange moment! "
