Remarks shared after Festival visit

Cagliari is a city on a small island of Italy. By the seashore, there are a lot of small houses and shops with relaxing lifestyle. The organizer of the short film festival has fallen in love with this small city, then he started to organize short film show here. By inviting film makers from all over the world to the festival, they have also boosted the tourism here.

The screening session started after dinner time, so as to let more people to join in as well. The atmosphere was really nice.

I exchanged ideas with other film directors. They mentioned the difficulties that they were facing during production and their thoughts on their works. The works are mature, even the works from students. The quality of the production has already reached a certain standard, especially the lighting and the choice of music. Moreover, most of the short films with a deep meaning that left us a large space to think after watching.
