Emmanuel Benbihy is feature-length film producer who created Shanghai I Love You, a franchise of Cities of Love. This term, students from schools around Shanghai wrote and submitted scripts to 'Shanghai I Love You' which were independently judged.
On Sunday 22nd November, NAIS Pudong Year 12 and 13 IB film students, along with Yukiko from Year 8, attended the presentation of the top 15 scripts. Out of the three scripts that NAIS students submitted, two made the final cut.
Both Yukiko and Matias now have an amazing opportunity over the next few months, with help and support of professionals in the film industry, to turn these scripts into short films. The making of films as we all know cannot be done alone, so these students will have to build their own film crews to assist in this process.
We all look forward to seeing the final cut.
