With the Oscars ceremony taking place this weekend, the medium of film is very much in the news at the moment. But it's not all about Hollywood - independent filmmakers are also making headlines, among them our own lecturer Masa Hilcisin, who heads the Creative Media Production programme at Prague College.
Her new feature, 'I Realized I Never Wrote You A Letter, Mom', is being premiered on 14 March at the 40th International Women's Film Festival in Paris as part of the International Documentary Competition. Jackie Buet, founder of the festival, has praised the film for its poetry and emotional impact.
We asked Masa to tell us a little about the project:
Masa, many congratulations on having your screening at the festival. What is the film about?
I Realized I Never Wrote You A Letter, Mom' will be screened at 9pm on 14 March in Creteil, south-east of Paris, as part of the Films de Femmes festival.
