A word about film culture in general: in the USA you can have access to hundreds of TV stations. Still, none would ever consider showing a film by Chris Marker, not a single station has participated in the production of a single work by James Benning. Only ten years ago, that was different in Europe, but in the last years we have experienced a dramatic commercialisation. Being invited by JIFF to make a short, I found the freedom to work without having to think about formats and standards. I can focus on what I want to convey and on how to do it. Work should be this way, but hardly ever is-not only for filmmakers. I must be grateful to the festival and I am.
