New York is having their 50th Film Festival and according to Richard Peña, (Selection Committee Chair & Program Director of the Film Society of Lincoln Center), "The films making up the main slate of this year’s NYFF (New York Film Festival), have in common a general quality of fearlessness". These are films that are all very unique in their own creative way. Award winners will be their, as well as the Actresses/Actors. and two directors will be making their debut , including, Antonio Mendez Esparza’s, and Pablo Larrain’s. both top, and grand prize winners on very disparate films.
This is important to me because, I am going to make a film with my two friends for the film festival that is going to be located at Anaheim. That is what probably caught my eye the most. I want to be motivated. And this helped me get on to that track, just seeing all of the directors that are going to be their, and all the ones that have won awards in the past and expecting them in the future as well.
This article has an impact on me, that wants me to push myself to be the very best that i can be so that i can achieve the high expectations i have set for myself. I want to be BETTER than these directors. I want to be one of the very greatest. I want to be one of the very young directors that end up having a lot of success because of my strive. This is going to make me work harder in school for what i want to accomplish. By reading this it makes me what to see who the directors are for each film that i go see and what is their background and what accomplishments the director has done thought his/her career.
This makes me wonder how did all of the people that are so successful right now winning those awards, get to the point that they are in right now. I want to know so that i can set my own path so that others could follow. I want to know how long they have been trying their hardest, and how much passion all of these directors have in their work. I want to know so that i can learn a little from each and everyone so that i can put all of the main points into my own unique journey into becoming one of the greatest.
