A week ago today I got home from the National Film Festival For Talented Youth, better known as NFFTY. NFFTY is the largest youth film festival in the world and is located in Seattle, WA. It is an amazing four day festival filled with screenings, pannels and networking. This year I met and reconnected with so many creative and talented people from around the globe. And at the end of the festival I was named the Best Emerging Filmmaker age 15-19. I was so shocked I forgot my name when they announced it until my friend Morgana started screaming like the loudest soccer mom you’ve ever heard. Thank you so much NFFTY for creating such an inspiring and encouraging environment.
