Yesterday night I hosted the shorts competition for Ciné Premières 2011. A film festival dedicated to French cinema. With some great entries it promised to be quite the night. And it didn’t disappoint. Especially meeting directors Julien Petit, Olivier Treiner, Nicholas Silhol and the actress Sarah Suco and talk to them about telling stories, finding work and the ‘Occupy’ movement was very enjoyable. Having to speak French, Dutch and English, pretty much at the same time, proved quite a challenge. Thankfully I got so many compliments about my hosting duties, I blushed the entire way home.
