What people are saying about Fernanda Rossi’s work and seminars:

"After being a finalist at ITVS Open Call four times, I finally won. That happened after I worked with Fernanda, who managed to connect the subtle dots between past panel feedbacks, proposals and works-in-progress."

"We had a trailer and lots of opposing comments from different people. When we had only three days left to submit to ITVS, she helped us finish our treatment and version of the sample work. We were selected!"

"After a very informative and enlightening workshop with Fernanda, we put together a trailer and proposal. She was clear and unambiguous in her analysis, yet very respectful and supportive of our vision. In the end, the NFB took on the financing of the full production!"
