The Filmmakers Academy represents a selection of young filmmakers chosen from all over the world (only 25 participants are selected over hundreds of candidates).
It represents a unique opportunity for the participants to meet and interact with internationally acclaimed professionals.
The dynamic and creative spirit of the Filmmakers Academy is well represented by Frank Fu, film director and artist who attended the Filmmakers Academy in 2013. Frank made a personal performance taking a series of selfies with all the Academy's guests.
