On SSFF & ASIA’ｓ upcoming 4th Online Talk Series, we will feature 2 interviews featuring international guests.
One of the guests will be Dejan Bućin, the festival director of the CORONA SHORT FILM FESTIVAL – the First (and hopefully last) International Pandemic Short Film Festival. We will discuss the evolution of the festival from speed start-up to accumulating over 1,200 submissions from over 70 countries. The quality & content of short films under 5 minutes & what emerges from the viewpoint of the filmmakers.
The other guest is Cara Cusumano, festival director of the TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL which was inaugurated in 2002 by Robert De Niro & others in response to the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center. Topics will be the process in the decision making to take the award announcement online & collaboration with We Are One: A Global Film Festival and how that has revealed a new style of film festival.
The audience can post comment and questions in real time during the first streaming on July 16th.
