Remarks shared after Festival


“The main focus of this Festival is that it has gathered more than 2500
short films all around the world in a year, which had provided a comfortable area to allow all the short filmmakers
to discuss our work with each other. I met some short film producers during the festival. We exchanged e-mail

“The main focus of this Festival is that it has gathered more than 2500

to discuss our work with each other. I met some short film producers during the festival. We exchanged e-mail
to keep in touch. The amazing part is that we even discuss films via e-mail during and after the
festival. NAE does provide a huge opportunity to make us the filmmakers connect
with the real film industry and it surely is a platform which can broaden
filmmakers' horizons. Having
the chance to meet different film directors in different countries is already an amazing experience. I
would love to attend more and more film festivals if I have chance.”
