CinemAsia Film Festival 2010
This is the 4th edition of CinemAsia Film Festival in Amsterdam. I was invited for the opening ceremony with the premiere of ‘Dream Home’. When I entered the theater, I heard my name so I was like what’s going on. But it was the announcement of the directors of the FilmLab Shorts. Then festival director, Doris Yeung, gave a speech and introduced the different themes. I didn’t knew what kind of film Dream Home is. I thought a regular drama film or something. So I was quite shocked of the opening scene. It was just the opening, and it was getting more violent. The effects were so damn realistic. Mandy was so excited. Not my thing. Another girl next to me covered her eyes with her hands. But she didn’t screamed =P
After watching Josie Ho as a killing machine, we went downstairs and tried to open the miniature house with the key we had. The price is 2 tickets to Hong kong! Susan was right after me and . . .click! Wow! The door just popped open and she screamed and everybody was looking, the camera was rolling. Amazing! I’m so happy for her. We took some photos and I think she couldn’t sleep that night.
The Ketelhuis was decorated in the sphere of ‘Dream home style’. It made me feel like Halloween. Good promotion of the premiere film! We had a drink and some snack, oh ya the snacks were horrible, sliced fingers with ketchup haha! We had a lot of fun taking pictures and I had a chat with some peeps around there like Dutch-Chinese actor Aaron Wan, and also the producer/artist Conroy Chan. It was fun talking with them!
