Every year I meet exciting new talent from all around Europe at the pitch weekend and I track at least one or two throughout the year and beyond (Una Gunjak, Vilja Autiokyro, Geoff Bellhouse, Daan Bunnik, Carla Pipo and many more). And this year is no different. I met two unique filmmakers there this year: Gorana Jovanovic and Kyla Bruce. Gorana had a project with singing Lenin statues and Kyla a girls' road trip. I will definitely stay in touch with them.

First Time Directors

I have been thinking about the stigma and the draw surrounding this title. All my feature projects - and I guess my shorts too in terms of “feature status” - are pretty much with first time directors. Sometimes I long to be at the stage where I can be working with more established directors – albeit them also being the first-timers I’m working with, only them (and me) having MADE that first feature!!! –. Get me out of perpetual development please…
