Remarks shared after Festival visit

The most prominent factor about this festival was its function as a catalyst. It was an opportunity for me to speak out and let my voice be heard, as we were teamed up to create a project within a couple days and we all shared our skills and ideas. Not only that, our skills in editing and camera setting also improved significantly. I am truly thrilled to be a part of NAE. This scheme encourages more of our local talents to participate in international film festivals, where they can learn about techniques and ideas from other cultures, and vice versa. Continuous exchange and interaction will bring the creative industry to develop, enrich and mature.
