WomenTalk TV episode bysocial entrepreneur Eunice Olsen is the only Asian entry in this year’s Official Selection for the Web series category in Raindance.
An episode of social entrepreneur Eunice Olsen’s Web interview series WomenTalk TV has been chosen as an Official Selection at the ongoing Raindance Film Festival in London.
The episode, which features Olsen speaking with Dr Maya Bhattachan, Nepal’s first female neurosurgeon, will be screened on Friday at London’s Vue Picadilly cinema as part of the festival’s Web series section.
Olsen, 38, who is in London for the event, is excited to catch the episode on the big screen for the first time.
“There was a lot of squealing and jumping up and down when we heard that this was accepted as an Official Selection, and I’m just really excited to see it on the big screen.
“We’re very grateful and encouraged that a small programme from Singapore can compete on an international stage. I’m very happy and very honoured,” she tells The Straits Times in a telephone interview.
Now in its 24th edition, Raindance Film Festival is Britain’s answer to the Sundance Film Festival, screening and promoting independent films made in Britain and beyond.
WomenTalk TV is the only Asian entry to make it to the Official Selection for the festival’s Web series category this year.
