This week, we were delighted to finally meet our partners from Screen Talent Europe in person!
President of STE, Marion Bouvier (NUFF and Tvibit in Tromsø kommune, Norway) and Vice President Joris Hoebe (New Noardic Wave) joined us in Glasgow and even managed to bring the sunshine with them. Their trip to Scotland included a meet up with GMAC Film, a tour of the Glasgow Film Theatre, and a visit to our friends over at Film City Futures, giving them a taste of the creative collaboration we thrive on.
Vice President Joris Hoebe said:
“An important thing I took away from this trip is that our sector is mainly run by very passionate film and story-loving people, and although things in our sector can be made difficult sometimes due to budget cuts and inflation, it’s the people who run these programmes and festivals that are making it worthwhile. GMAC and Film City Futures have some clever ideas and inspiring programmes which I would love to run in our own workshops at New Noardic Wave, and we’re already hoping to come back to Scotland in March for the Glasgow Film Festival”.
This exciting relationship with our partners at STE is really starting to flourish, with Little Pictures filmmakers Cat McLeod being selected for the European residence training program ‘Director’s Village’, and Nazia Mohammad claiming first place at the Screen Talent Europe Pitching Forum 2023. We’re looking forward to developing our partnership with STE further in the coming months and collaborating on upcoming cultural exchange projects which will benefit the people and city of Glasgow, as well as our friends over in Europe.
