Struggled so much with the obligatory evaluation of GIFF 2010 during yesterday that I completely failed to enter this blog. No good. But at least the evaluation is done – a really important thing if we shall be able to improve the fantastic thing we are creating and recreating in new ways every year. Because there is always room for improvement.
March 1 we had the deadline for applications to the film fund. This time we support post production and as ususal it will be so exciting to go through the pile of projects. Let’s hope for something fantastic that will be ready for Cannes! Talking about fund films, try to se Soul Boy by Hawa Essuman from Kenya. It had its world premiere during our festival and then went on to win the Hubert Bals audience award in Rotterdam a few days after.
Finally the sun is shining and I really wish the snow could go away now. All of it. For god’s sake, it’s been here for three months, hasn’t it!
