CIWF Filmmaker Interview – Nichole Post
Busan Artist Ways
Q: What are your hopes for the event?
NP. I hope there is a large turn-out of viewers to show their support.
Q: This is the 4th year of CIWF. What’s been the best part/a favorite memory of the festival in years past?
NP: The best part has been participating- being able to see my own work on a big screen and viewed for others, as well as seeing the creativity of the other female filmmakers.
Q: We hold CIWF at The Bug Theatre. Why is The Bug a great home for this event?
NP: The Bug Theatre is local, it’s fun, it has character.
Q: Tell me briefly about yourself and your film/project.
NP: I lived in South Korea for four years on and off since 2006. Not until recently did the arts scene there begin to show through the cracks, it seemed, often overshadowed by technology and the common desire to assimilate. As I began to meet more artists in Busan, I became intrigued by the variances of each individual and their views on what art is, and should be.
Q: Is there anything you’d like to say about Colorado Independent Women of Film?
NP: I think it’s a really important platform to showcase the talents of these women.
Q: Tell us one unique thing about you and/or your movies?
NP: My films are most often affected by my experiences living outside of the United States.
Q: What else are you working on?
NP: I’m working on small personal projects from my travels.
Busan Artist Ways will screen Friday, August 15th at 9:00 p.m. at The Bug Theatre.
