“The program of  CinemAsia gives me the feeling that there are oppurtunities in the film- and tv-industry as a Dutch Asian. Being able to participate in the Jam Session felt as a helping hand: something I was looking for and hoping for.

Although I knew nobody at CinemAsia, I felt very welcome. Not only because I felt accepted because of my background, but also beacuse there was interest for my filmidea that was still in an early stage of development.

The feedback I got was constructive and professional: very direct, concrete and confrontating, but also refreshing, creative and encouraging. Not only they listened very well to my goals, but also they were doing suggestions to reach these goals.

After the Jam Session I felt extra motivated, because I got tools and a clear direction to go on with my project. Besides of that I feel myself supported, because I found a connection within a community. I feel extra inspiration to contribute and to be of value for more reprenstation of Dutch Asians in the  film and tv-industry.”
