One of the top speakers, Kenyan director Likarion Wainaina spoke about his experiences when making the film SUPA MODO. “It’s not only our job to build up the industry but to lay a foundation for the next generation that will define what cinema will be all about.” Katriel Schory, CEO (Emeritus) of the Israel Film Fund gave a deep insight into what it means to build a film culture against all odds. “Film and policy makers as well as funds have a responsibility towards the young audience and should take this responsibility very seriously.”
