Remarks shared after Festival visit

"Having two of my animated films invited by two distinctive film festivals in Europe, the 13th up-and-coming International Film Festival Hannover in Germany and the IFF Etiuda&Anima 2015 in Poland, I was honored to attend both festivals in one trip. It was out of my expectation that I could receive the International Young Film Makers Award by the 13th up-and-coming International Film Festival Hannover in person. As 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 and share our individual experiences. It is indeed thought provoking for my future creations and I look forward to collaborating with them in the near future.

I have met some new director friends and some festival organizers from other festivals during the festival, and I was even invited to another other festival by an organizer. This is an unforgettable experience full of joy. "

— Shared by Poon Yin-tung Jessica, director of April 21, after attending IFF Etiuda&Anima 2015 in Poland, under the sponsorship of NAE.

"The festival is wonderful. It takes place every two years (odd years) in Hannover, targeting young film makers up to the age of 27. This target group has massive potential for creative talent; talent just waiting to be discovered and cultivated. Film entries have been sent in from 57 countries; 82 films from 34 countries had been selected for the international competition program, 75 films for the international competition program. It is such a great opportunity to be part of it. From the festival, I am able to know more about what young directors are doing, and how good they are. Meeting directors, producers from all around the world help me to generate new ideas and thought.

I met many directors and producers there. We have lots of time to talk to each other. I stayed contact with a Russian director, a Chinses director and his producer whose films I like very much. "
