ANNIE NOCENTI selects CINE INSTITUT HAITI as Katrin Cartlidge Foundation bursary recipient 2010


Journalist, writer, editor, filmmaker Annie Nocenti has selected the Cine Institut, Jakmel, Haiti, to receive the seventh Katrin Cartlidge Foundation bursary; the first time that the bursary has been given to an organisation rather than to an individual.  Cine Institut receives this honour in recognition of its inspiring and pioneering work documenting life in Haiti since the devastating earthquake of January 2010.

Haitian film student KEZIAH JEAN has been selected to collect the bursary at the Sarajevo Film Festival on behalf of the film school. She will take part in the Sarajevo Film Festival Talent Campus, where she will have an opportunity to share her short films which include PINCHINAT, THE STUDENTS and WEDDING DRUM.
