"In the end, it's about the money."

Producer & cast of A ROOM OF MY OWN

A ROOM OF MY OWN is a success story. Shot on a shoestring and in the midst of strict Covidar lockdowns, Ioseb "Soso" Bliadze's sensitive intimate drama unexpectedly became a festival favourite and won the race for the coveted NRW Film Prize in 2022. How did it do that? With strong, multi-layered heroines and a sensitive look at female solidarity.

We talk to producer Eva Blondiau (Color of May) and stars Taki Mumladze and Mariam Khundadze about working without funding, friendship and the moments that keep you going.

We present Bright New Talents: The stories have always been there. They just need to be told.
