I had the chance to travel quite a lot with my movie "Minh Tâm", and Ransäter Film Festival will be for sure one of my best memories over the past 2 years. My movie got the award for Best Short Film of the first edition and the festival team invited me! The least I can say is that I had a wonderful time there. I was amazed by the organization, the warm welcome of Alaska and the audience, and by the quality of the films selection. And the location, stunning! A beautiful barn, that seemed to be lost in the middle of Sweden, gave a genuine spirit to the festival. I absolutely loved it!
Minh Tâm also got the Audience Award. It could not have been betters.

I've been to dozens and dozens of festivals around the world and I've never experienced anything like the Ransäter Film Festival. For starters, it takes place in the middle of a fragrant pine forest. It is such a lovely and serene place, as soon as I arrived my entire body was infused with well-being. I was there for almost a week but the entire festival took place over the course of a single day. The festival is short and sweet, intimate and friendly; an intense distillation of the joys of short independent filmmaking. And I was lucky enough to win the jury prize that came with a wad of cash, so who could ask for more? They even paid for my plane ticket to bring me all the way from Canada! The place is so beautiful, the festival is so well-run, the people are so welcoming, I would go back in a heart-beat!"
