East Winds Film Festival
It wasn’t hard to choose a team. I’m interested in films and I like writing. I do not have much experience with Asian films, but I take it as a challenge to discover contemporary Asian cinema and make it appealing to people like me, who do not know much about it.
Due to my BA in Art History and Theory, I am well acquainted with research practices. I have already written a dissertation on Expressionist German films in the socio-historical context of the Weimar Republic and the films’ links with the painting of the same movement, therefore I will approach films in a wider way, looking at cultural context, industry, public reactions, and other cinematic productions.
I can both produce easy and engaging written works, which’s informal style appeals and keeps the readers’ interest, while still having a solid theoretical ground, as well as more academic writings. I also reviewed a few art exhibitions during my undergraduate years, so I am accustomed to events reviews.
I work well under pressure and I can deliver quality material even when dealing with tight deadlines and unexpected requirements. I’m not especially comfortable with interviews, but I am willing to adapt and accept the interviewer’s role if necessary.
Skills: research abilities, article, film/events reviews writing (using different styles for different types of audience), attention to detail and self-criticism (I will not make public any written work which is not based on accurate and reliable sources), time management (I have a flexible program, which allows me to meet tight deadlines), I’m responsible, enthusiastic (as cinema is my field of interest, and being part of a festival is a great opportunity, and a challenge at the same time), communication skills and the ability to work in a team.
