The first session of Ties That Bind in Udine was a great success!
10 selected participants had the chance to share and develop further their feature film projects thank to an intense 5 days – workshop led by international film experts from Asia and Europe, such as Roger Garcia (Hong Kong International Film Festival – Hong Kong), Shanty Harmayn-Hofman (Salto Films – Indonesia), Silvia Simonutti (Wild Bunch – France) and Jean-Baptiste Babin (Backup Films – France).
