“Under the Stars” participates at Docs By The Sea International Documentary Forum 2018

August 2018. Bali, Indonesa

After the If/Then workshop and pitching forum in May 2018. The short film, “Legend of the Fish” evolved into “Under the Stars” and participated in the Docs By The Sea International Documentary Forum.

The film attended story telling labs, and one on one meetings from August 2 – 6. In the end, all the projects were pitched at the pitching forum that took place from August 7 – 9.

The film won the IDFA Award for Most Project where it was invited to the IDFAcademy that takes place during the annual International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam 2018

The workshop gave us an opportunity to meet film makers from all over the world and to share our doubts, ideas, inspirations, and stories. This experience made the process richer. Knowing that other people share our struggles in different ways and forms reminds us that we are not alone in the process.

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.
