European Fall Trip: Amsterdam, 10/28 – 11/2
Next stop: Amsterdam | The Klik! Amsterdam Film Festival!
I was invited to judge the KLIK! Animation Festival in Amsterdam and had such a lovely time…
I also introduced Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet — where an exuberant audience said hello to Director Roger Allers back home in LA:
I also had a full load of “consultation shifts” where I was reviewing portfolios and talking shop with students and professionals.
Great turn out.
It was an amazing 5 days of non-stop film-watching — and making new friends!
And seeing old friends…!!
I was one of 3 jurors, along with Dutch Film programmer Ronald Simons and Writer/Director, Joost Rejmers…
We were tasked with judging the KLIK! MediaMonks Award for Best Animated Short 2015, which we unanimously and quickly awarded to Celine DeVaux for Le Repas Dominical (Sunday Lunch).
We also awarded to prizes to 2 Dutch filmmakers:
Best Humor went to Paniek! by Daan Velsink and Joost Lieuwma.
And Best Craftsmanship went Zeezucht (Jonas and the Sea) by Marlies van der Wel.
To Yvonne and Tunde — thank you for such a lovely invitation and such a wonderful time…
My love and ENORMOUS thanks to Eeke for going beyond the call, each and every day.
I could not have been looked after better.
See you all again soon.
