In November 2018. We attended the IDFAcademy, during the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam.
It was a week filled with workshops, film screenings, and meeting mentors who would help us in pushing our films forward. We almost met many film makers who are in the process of developing their ideas, and some who are already showing their work in the festival. Hearing other people’s process gives perspective on how there are many different ways we can develop our own when approaching the projects we have at hand.
The week in Amsterdam was busy and incredibly enriching. Here are some photographs of us during breaks.
Svemirko Film Productions was co-founded in 2019 by Venice Atienza (Philippines) and Fan Wu (Taiwan) with the aim to direct and produce creative documentaries with strong personal stories. The Croatian word ‘’Svemirko” literally translate to “dear little universe” in English. Our ambition is to bring to life stories that open up universes that are often forgotten or disregarded. We are currently producing Atienza’s film Last Days at Sea, which is awarded the IDFA Bertha fund Classic in 2019. In parallel, we are also producing Wu’s film XiXi, which was awarded the National Documentary Production Fund in 2019. Both projects have been invited to participate in film markets around the world including LisbonDocs, Docedge Kolkata and Docs By the Sea Indonesia.
