DIRECTOR: Dimi Nakov.
SELF-FUNDED: Blind Side.
A local film-maker who self-funded his latest project by working as a camera operator and runner will see his hard work pay off when it screens at a prestigious short film festival.
BlindSide, a self-funded independent short film, will be screened at the Cannes Short Film Corner as part of the Cannes Film Festival 2012 in May.
Dimi Nakov, the film’s director, said he was “reluctant” to enter the film into the prestigious festival.
“Cannes is very prestigious and I wasn’t sure how a low-budget film like this could afford the submission fee. But in the end, we submitted it and were really surprised that it got in.” he said.
BlindSide, which was shot over nine weekends, focuses on a white middle-class family embroiled in domestic violence.
