AWARDS

I believe I can achieve anything I set my mind to. These awards are among my proudest reminders.

A friend and I entered the Curacao International Film Festival Rotterdam (CIFFR) short film competition without any experience in filmmaking. We believed we would win and worked hard to make that reality. And we succeeded: we won the first prize and audience award and our short film was shown at CIFFR and IFFR. The year after, we won the same awards.
