Here are some posts written by ÉCU Team members during the festival:


I CAN’T BELIEVE IT’S OVER! What an exhausting weekend. Although it was a lot of work, I’m going to miss the amazing experiences I’ve had. Thank you to everyone who made it out to the festival. Congratulations to all of the award winners, this is absolutely amazing. As we all wrap up here and start heading out to the after party, I just want to give a huge shout out to all of my fellow staff members, Scott and Kadi for a crazy/insane/adrenaline-filled/insert-other-adjectives-here experience. This may be the last blog post of the 2015 festival, but this is definitely not the last blog post of the European Independent Film Festival. Here’s to many more great editions! Good luck to future staff…you’re going to need it! Remember everyone…STAY COOL, STAY INDIE!

The festival hasn’t ended yet but I feel nostalgic already. It’s been a weekend of intense learning! It’s always so cool to see the world from someone else’s perspective… I will miss sitting in this big dark room.

I can’t believe we’re already nearing the last session of the festival, this weekend has gone by so fast! It’s been a whirlwind experience, meeting so many people from across the globe coming together for one purpose. Can’t wait to find out the winners!

Day 3 aka my millionth café au lait aka several pictures and social media posts later aka the last day of the festival! I am both happy and sad that this festival is coming to a close. However, I can’t think about that right now; there are still so many things to do! There are currently two workshops on right now. I’m very excited to see what kind of pictures the photographers get. We’re going to get to see an editing master impart his knowledge as well as drones! I already got a few pictures and I think someone was singing with a guitar in one of the workshops. You really never know what to expect from ÉCU!

My favourite part of the festival has been meeting the directors. It has been so cool to talk with them about their films and get to know them. It has been an amazing weekend and I am so excited for the award ceremony tonight!
