Director Statement
My animation contains imaginative stories, describing small, but relatable moments based on sharp observation of people’s lives and my own life experiences. My art will make people laugh, feel and think about something important in our world. My unique and attractive characters’ is not just cartoony or silly but more genuine and truthful. Some of them will provoke authentic laughter, and they will randomly pop up in your mind and make you happy, and some of them will make you look back on what happened in our society. My animation has a clear purpose that supports storytelling more effectively with the right timing that brings life to the animation. My animation springs from my indomitable will and hard work that makes everything work nicely.

The irony of this festival is that its goal is to not be around in 5 years time. To eventually not be relevant because there is zero need to have a festival geared for female talent and female stories because the stories presented in Hollywood and around the world are a balanced showcase of the human experience from both sexes. Our goal is to achieve a lot of success and then fold into oblivion simply because there is no need for this festival. This festival was created by the FEEDBACK Film & Writing Festival as a simple reaction to a strong need to showcase female talent from around the world in a more profound way. When putting together the weekly festival, the administration noticed a lack of a female presence in the stories being shown at the festival. A classic example and analogy to the frustration is how the festival noticed that even the smaller roles in a screenplay were written for a man to play. There was zero reason for this in many stories. How a police officer, or a political campaign manager, for example with 3-4 lines in a screenplay was a "HE" character. Why? And these are the screenplays written by the winners! The talented one who have obtained agents and have began/beginning their careers as a writer.
