Nijole - Best Doc at FEST Pitching Forum

XehFEST

I had the opportunity to pitch the documentary project "Nijole", a movie that approaches for the first time the life and art of Nijole Sivickas, mother of Antanas Mockus, at the Pitching Forum of FEST - New Directors New Film Festival 2017, at Espinho, Portugal.

The project was selected as Best Feature Documentary Project.  The film won the post-production price at ENVY studios in London, UK.
