Some of you might remember me from my first trip to Tribeca Film Festival back in April 2007 as a Film Fellow.
Through TFI’s Tribeca Film Fellows program, now in its fifth year, 20 young people exchange ideas, explore the possibilities of cinema and develop their voices through film. During the Festival, budding filmmakers are granted a unique all-access look at the Festival and the film industry through a series of screenings, panels, workshops, creative filmmaking exercises and special events. The Film Fellows program also creates a short group film that depicts all five boroughs of New York City through the eyes of its young filmmakers.
At the end of the 2 weeks visit, Tribeca and Rwanda, hosted a special screening and talkback for our work Three Voices: Focus on Rwanda, Empowering Rwanda's Youth through Filmmaking.
I had such a great experience back in 2007 but now I am back at Tribeca working as an intern with the youth.
This brings me to the name of my blog / RWANDACT2. Well, ACT1 was our first trip and I am excited about this opportunity to be back but also to share with you all, my experiences in the next few weeks I will spend here in New York. I will be posting some of my experiences here, run a video diary but most of all; I look forward to your comments and exchange.
Talk to you and see you soon!
