Happy and humbled – director of dark film heads for bright lights of CannesBy Reynald Castaneda ⋅ May 10, 2012
An Auckland-based filmmaker is off to this year’s Cannes Film Festival after successfully fundraising for his trip on the internet.
Dimi Nakov, director and producer of Blindside, is “happy and humbled” that his short film is included in this year’s Cannes Short Film Corner digital library.
This inclusion allows Nakov to join film workshops and networking events during the festival and is also an opportunity to sell future projects to international film buyers.
Blindside, a dark film about domestic abuse in Kiwi households, was self-funded by Nakov who was hesitant at first to attend the festival.
