In the fifth grade of high school (2016) I created the short film ‘SweetKitty10’. After its release, the film received a lot of positive feedback; it was one of the highlights of the Dutch National Film Festival for (School) Students in 2016, where it won 2 of the main prizes. The following year, the film was screened at several international (children) film festivals and has received multiple nominations.
