Making films for children is often very rewarding and fulfilling, according to Frederike Migom. The ambitious and award-winning Belgian film director, writer and actor will lead this creative masterclass as she talks about her passion for making films relevant to young audiences and guides you through the process of making her first feature Binti. After its premiere in 2019, the film has been screened at more than 40 festivals worldwide, including the Sundance Film Festival 2020, and won 10 awards to date. She will talk about her creative ambition, the challenges and the dead-ends, and also about her most rewarding moments. She will also give some crucial tips about creative direction for first features.
Film students and all creatives planning to produce their first feature will find this masterclass extremely beneficial.
“I make films about things that interest and puzzle me.”
