“It is my second visit to a European film festival.
My first time was also sponsored by NAE to Clermont-Ferrand International Short
Film Festival and Market in France. The two visits are very different. This
festival is relatively smaller and more local. Audiences are mostly local
people from the town. The organizers didn't put English subtitles onto the
films which made it a bit harder for me to understand the films. However, in
return it is a good way to appreciate films focusing on a visual way. It was
interesting to exchange comments and ideas about film-making with local
audiences. Right outside one of the screening venue was a pizza place. It was
where I bumped into some audiences and talked about the film for hours! Although
they didn't speak English well and know much about Hong Kong, it is amazing that
they understood my film well. I feel very grateful about this experience.”

“Although Woman Make Waves Film
Festival is not a short-listed festival of NAE, when I get there, I feel that
it is a very well-organized festival that I would recommend all female
directors to participate in. The festival targets to promote only works of
female directors, but male filmmakers are welcomed to be the audience. The
festival was held in a nicely equipped theatre and I could see their great
effort to promote the event as tickets were well sold.. [More]

screening, I saw so many audiences attended even it was a Monday night and I
was very touched.



The exchange of ideas with the
staff and audiences after the screening was great. They are mostly not
filmmakers but people who are interested in gender-related issues. It is
refreshing to see films in such aspect. The whole trip has been very rewarding!
I am very grateful to have been invited!”
