The Far East Film Festival (FEFF), in Udine, Italy has announced the awardees of the 8th edition of its FEFF Campus. The innovative education programme will host 10 aspiring critics from Asia and Europe from 22 to 30 April 2023.
After assessing applications that came in from across the globe, FEFF is very proud to announce that this year’s successful Campus candidates are Zhu Zijiao (China); Eunha Lim (South Korea); Amarsanaa Battulga (Mongolia); Eunice Joyce B. Helera (Philippines); Jolie Fan Yuxuan (Singapore); Veronica Calienno (Italy); Greta Elettra Broms (Sweden); Harry Robinson (United Kingdom); Elizabeth Alpaidze (Georgia); and Mariona Borrull Zapata (Spain).
“We were impressed with the high standard of diverse applicants and the obvious passion they showed for Asian cinema,” said FEFF festival director, Sabrina Baracetti. “We are preparing to welcome them together – live and online – for a unique cross-cultural experience.”
The FEFF Campus programme was initiated in 2015 and will this year continue its commitment to providing a unique opportunity for emerging film industry talents to go “behind the scenes” at a film festival, while learning from the expertise provided by a line-up of media and film-industry veterans. This year’s Campus will include special seminars related to film-specific subjects, such as “What It Means to Be a Critic”, while the successful candidates will also have the opportunity to interview a selection of the biggest stars in Asia, and the chance to have their work published on global media platforms.
They will also have direct access to the ever-popular FEFF Talks series of seminars and guest appearances. The “business of film” is also high on the agenda, and the Campus attendees will be able to gain a valuable insight into the inner workings of the industry through FEFF’s "Focus Asia" and “Ties That Bind” industry sections.
