(b.2003) At the moment, Stella is entering her last year of high school, residing in Bali. Her love for the arts, creation, cinema, and learning opportunities brought her to the Minikino Youth Jury Camp 2019. Her expectations weren’t set but after 40+ films, it’s safe to say that the experience has cultivated her capacity to analyse films in a both critical and appreciative perspective.
(b.2002) I enjoy various forms of literature and have always been curious about how filmmakers process their images in order to deliver them in the form of a whole film. The Youth Jury Camp 2018 gave me the experience to judge on art pieces presented in a board of jurors, thus I didn’t merely judge the work solely from my own point of view. Youth Jury camp has taught me another perspective on seeing a movie, there’s much more side to just actors and plot.
(b.2004) At the moment, Qiu just entered high school, residing in Bali. Through the MFW Youth Jury Camp 2019, she got a chance to preview the world’s best selection of short films and critically discussed its context in an intense panel discussion with other participants.
(b.2002) Kayla currently resides in Thailand, having just finished high school and will pursue university in the UK. She has always been fascinated by film and it has played a significant part of her life, from being an avid film watcher to having previously studied and created films in school. Being able to watch and analyze so many diverse films is a privilege that allows her to broaden the knowledge of this art.
(b.2002) Cinta has always enjoyed film since she was a kid. Her first experience making a short film with her schoolmates when she was 14 years old made her love films even deeper. She finds the process of making films including the promotion parts is interesting. Her dream is to one day take part in the marketing world of the international film industry
