Next up in our meet the team series is Sem. Read about his favourite childhood media production and where he is looking forward to in October!

Sem, please introduce yourself and tell us a little about your background.

Hi, I’m Sem, the new Cinekid for professionals intern. I will be assisting where I can until the 2016 Cinekid Festival draws to a close. After the festival I will be focussing on the script lab and the CfP website. I am in the third year of my studies of International Business & Languages. This Cinekid  internship is a part of my course. In my spare time I play football and I like to watch films and series.

Which media productions bring out the child in you?

As a kid I absolutely loved the movie The Jungle Book and since the film’s 3D launch this summer, I’m in love with the story all over again. This new movie definitely brings out the child in me. Furthermore, I like to play FIFA on the Playstation. I’ve had every version since the year 2004 and, as childish as it may sound, I am not planning to stop play.

What are you most looking forward to during the festival?

It’s going to be the first time that I attend the festival, either as employee or spectator. So, I don’t really know what to expect, other than the stories my colleagues tell me. Anyway, I’m especially looking forward to the script lab as I am highly interested in all the participants’ creative ideas and also I will be controlling the script lab process after the festival.
