Remarks shared after Festival visit

"I've been a fan of the Up-and-Coming Film Festival since I participated in 2013. Being a young and confused filmmaker, I felt good and assuring to be around with other filmmakers who have been going through the same phase of life. The fellow filmmakers and film-lovers in the festival were interesting and inspiring - many characters with unique personalities in the scene. At times, screenings include unusual films with unexpected themes and daring techniques created by young and fresh directors, among which experiences and skills vary. These films were refreshing and turned out to be sparkles in the middle of the dark, creating a beautiful harmony when they met curious eyes who looked for the odds.

The programs were well thought out. The mixture of films with different categories, i.e. live action, video art, animation and documentary, brought about an interesting flow in a screening, keeping the audience interested. Anna, the mediator of the Q&As, conducted the interviews elegantly with intelligent questions. It was overall an enjoyable experience. I hope to revisit in the future. "

“Revisiting the Up-and-coming Film Festival Hannover in 2015 has brought me a lot of chances to explore Europe film productions and develop myself. The Nordic Youth Film Festival/Workshop and the Leibniz Film Workshop had both invited me to attend to their workshops with sponsorship after watching my work at the festival.

Lately, I paid a visit to the Brussels Short Film Festival 2016 and Nordic Youth Film Festival 2016 that pathed the opportunities to work with different talented artists. Recently, I finished a music video, The Skeleton Band, with Sylwia Szkiladz. The festival visits bring me new insights and take me one step closer to my career goals.

These festival experience has brought about a diverse range of opportunities in short film productions and collaborations, enabling me to boost my career further. They gave me lots of inspirations and new ideas for my future artwork. I am glad that NAE supported me in widening possibilities and stretching abilities.”
