“I would love to recommend IFA to young emerging filmmakers because it's such a precious opportunity to work with so incredible master filmmakers. You can not only learn from their talks about their life experience in filmmaking, but also from making your own work under their conduction. I could never imagine to work this closely with the masters before I went to IFA.”
