Last year I got to host the French Film Festival Ciné Prèmieres short film competition. Hosting normally is a question of just curiosity and concentration, but last year turned out to be a bit of a challenge. The French filmmakers were ok with the idea of doing the interviews in English. Easier for me and the audience. Turned out, after the first question, they changed their minds. So all of a sudden I had to come up with questions in French, translate the answers to Dutch for the audience and come up with a new question at the same time. I managed through the evening though. On the 3rd of november I will be giving it another go in this years short film competition. Consider yourself invited. More info on tickets and the festival can be found on the website.
And to give you an idea of what you’re in for: here’s last years winner.
