Today we received a heart-warming letter from one of the filmmakers whose film was showcased at the festival last year:
… a year ago, my short film Out of Sight was selected by the Dawn Breaker Film Festival. I just wanted to tell you that since then, I’ve been planning to shoot my first feature film, and it’s now coming to life!
We’ve managed to have a co-production between France and the UK and a full budget, and we’re shooting in November. Thank you for awarding my short film…it was because of the credibility your selection brought me that I can now shoot my feature film and start my filmmaking career!
We are glad to have been a source of encouragement and opportunity to Nyima and several other filmmakers to whom DBIFF has opened doors.
And with that, check out Nyima’s new feature film: White Lie
