mission of the film:
Mind of Thoughts sheds a light on what few people ever speak about, mental health and the acceptance of failure. It takes a great mental toll to create, and often the bigger the project, the more pressure is on the line and the toll can become too much to levy. We have seen this from the greatest creative minds all over the world, from Ernest Hemmingway to Vincent Van Gogh.
Our hope is that anyone who watches this film understands more about the creative struggle and its mental toll. Creatives, both established and emerging, all suffer the same doubt, the same questions of self worth, and the battles of the mind. This is a reminder you are not alone.
Next to the topic of the film, Charlotte Verminck's vision as a filmmaker is to put as many creative people with ambition on the map as possible. She wants to give people who have a passion for their craft the opportunity to grow and live their dreams.
Therefore, the film will have its own in-person premiere where an official Behind The Scenes Documentary will also be shown. In addition, the short film will get submitted to various international film festivals to maximise its worldwide exposure.
