“My role, along with fellow students and writers at Take One, was to write four or more reviews on a variety of films shown at the festival.
“We were given press passes and allowed to view some films that we picked ourselves and some that were allocated to us. During the festival, I was able to chat with the director of one of the documentaries I watched, but there were many other opportunities to get involved in like hosting Q&As, interviewing directors and taking editorial ownership of the daily, a printed article that included interviews, previews and reviews.
“Take One was a safe platform to gain experience and the team were always willing to help and answer any questions we had. I thoroughly enjoyed my time writing for Take One as I got to watch incredible documentaries, shorts and feature films. I hope to be involved in other film festivals in the future and continue to gain experience film reviewing.
