Relaying comments of various guests from the 24th TIFF. (Part10)
Competition section:
Director, Menelaos Karamaghiolis
Actor, Alban Ukaj
Actor, Kevis Pachos
Q: How do you feel about participating in TIFF?
Menelaos Karamaghiolis (Director): It’s an amazing film festival. I thought it was very good and well organized with great audiences.
Alban Ukaj (Actor): I will only say that I hope to come back again to TIFF.
Kevis Pachos (Actor): I felt we were welcomed by every one here in the festival. You are extremely friendly and well organized. You are all such an amazing people.

Q: We made the TIFF slogan for this year as “Believe the Power of Film”. Do you have any specific episodes for feeling the power of the film?
Menelaos Karamaghiolis (Director): To tell you the truth, I believe more in the feelings and relationships rather than in the films. But it is good to see the films, because you will gain a very good experience to face your life in the future. And I hope that the Japanese people will recover from this terrible and tough situation and keep on making films and recreating the lives, sing songs and keep on trying to survive in many ways.
Alban Ukaj (Actor): I do not believe that the movies can change the world, but it can surely change a person, which is very important for me. If I ever did something that changed someone, I find that to be a big success. And I believe that only because there are some movies that changed something inside me too.
Kevis Pachos (Actor): Some times I think that the film could be very dedicated and could help people overcome the loss from disasters or solve financial crisis. It is very motivating to be an artist and be a part of the people who want to change the world.
