First Hand Films Collection

«First Hand Films wants to make people laugh and cry. We want to learn about our complex and beautiful world, fall in love and be seduced into new universes. If a film takes us through hell and back, if it lets us discover unique heroines and heroes and if it hides a political and human message in all these emotions, then we fall in love with a film.»
