From across the world, about 2000 short films out of the high thousands of applications made were accepted to be part of this year’s Cannes Film Festival. And at my hotel were two Norwegian young film students-Ole Elverhøi & Marius Myrmel whose short film was among those accepted.
You should be able to imagine the joy on their faces to be part of 67th Cannes Film Festival, the biggest film market in the world—considering their ages and the fact that this is their first short film.
Since they were staying in my hotel, I took time out to watch their short film-Without You and even brought in Fred Nuamah, Founder/CEO of Ghana Movie Awards to watch it too—and we all agreed that the quality of the production is far beyond anything we’ve seen in Ghana.
I had a chat with these young film-makers about their short film, their presence at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, the future of their short film and what they’ve got planned ahead for themselves.
If you are a young film-maker or film student anywhere in the world reading this, take some time out to watch the video below—and you will surely thank me later for this.
