Remarks shared after Festival visit

“Brooklyn Film Festival is a precious experience to Red Egg and me, the standard of works are very high in this festival and competition is keen. This festival provides a very good platform for filmmakers to know each other and share experiences on animation. It is a great cultural exchange.

On Animation category, the standard of works is very high, as most of the animators are already inside the industry. Most of them work in animation studios for TV or games. The works included in the screening is selected from 2,854 submissions coming from 120 different countries. Although RED EGG did not receive any award, I am very grateful to be included in the festival. The most important thing I received from this festival is Sand Art in animation form is highly appreciated in the community. Through this trip, I learnt that my presentation in the form of sand is generally accepted by the U.S., however, the music, storytelling technique and post-production skill are what I still have to improve a lot in order to gain any international award. Looking forward to next year Brooklyn Film Festival and I hope my future work can be included in the festival again.”
