And here’s what a few of this year’s participants have said about the 1st workshop…
“This workshop gave new life to my film: just before the beginning of the workshop I didn’t know how to continue with the editing. The work with the mentors and fellow participants made the light come out and the sun shine once more.”
“It’s the best place for networking. We met and bonded with more professionals than we could have imagined.”
“I’ve never met this kind of organisation or people. It’s like a family and when you are part of it you have advantages.”
