First,  our short films Metruk (The Abandoned), Oh No! My Father is Retired, Pierrot the Living Statue and Trace were screened and then the panel discussion begun. We talked about our personal journey for the short film genre, our filmmaking experiences, finding fund and sponsorship  for short films.  And finally, we shared our thoughts and experiences about being a female filmmaker in the film industry and in the cinema art which are still male dominated all around the world.
