Amid the pandemic, The Festival Fellows participated in the Babel Film Workshop global stay-at-home filmmaking initiative, Film Stylo. Their films, made as part of the initiative, are featured here and on the Film Stylo international archive of student films documenting their lives during this historical time. Below is Kaatje's Film Stylo project.
Kaatje (she/her/hers) is a 10th grader at New Haven Academy. She enjoys reading, baking, and doing calligraphy in her free time. Kaatje also plays the steel pan and is the Co-Founder of her school newspaper Tiger News. Kaatje joined the Fellowship program after having attended the festival over the past years with her family. As she enters her Junior year of high school she plans to follow her interest in the arts, as well as her interest in the medical field. One fun fact about Kaatje is that her favorite color is yellow, and her favorite musical artist is ODIE and Dua Saleh.
