Remarks shared after Festival


"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.. [More]

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. "

"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.. [More]
"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. "
