My First Film Festival Experience

My First Film Festival Experience

My first film festival experience was attending the 23rd Raindance Film Festival in London in November 2015.

If you have ever seen me when I am wearing my jacket, you may have noticed a white badge I always wear on my collar. I was handed that badge when I entered the festival and have worn it ever since. To me it is a symbol of everything I stand for and to continue to pursue my dream of working in film. If I ever feel unmotivated to make a film, I simply look down to it and remind myself how important it is to me. A constant reminder that I carry around with me.

It also acts as a motivation tool. When at the festival, I saw these great films that were  made with small independent budgets, and I mingled with likeminded people passionate about film, and these factors brought home to me that if they can do it, so can I. And one day, I will.
