Foreword by Leticia Trandafir
“I am very honored to have been invited to curate the music videos selection for the International Festival of Films on Art 2022. This is an opportunity for me to marry my involvement in the music world with the beautiful mission of FIFA, and to be able to amplify the work of emerging artists who blend music, rhythm, emotion and moving image. It is a great honor to be back in the world of programming and I can’t wait to present my selection to you.”
