The Young Director Award is dedicated to shining a light on emerging directors. YDA has supported and promoted debuting international creative talent in commercial film production since 1998. As a result, the awards have become a major platform for young directors to showcase their skills and techniques.
As a previous winner of the highly-regarded award, our director Kibwe Tavares was invited to catch up with this year’s jury chair of the awards, Karim Bartoletti, to discuss the origins of his creative inspiration and how his upbringing influenced his work and career as a director.
