Famous film makers are gathering in Ulaanbaatar for an international film makers’ festival called ‘Hollywood in Mongolia’. The event will be held in the Mongolian capital from 1-7 May. Earlier today, (29 April) the first visitor of the festival flew into Chinggis Khaan International. Bryce Nielsen is a VFX Producer; he worked on Cloud Atlas, Kingsman, The Golden Circle, Dark Phoenix, Iron Man2 and Dumbo. At a press conference at the Tuushin Hotel, he shared his first experience in Mongolia. Bryce Nielsen said, ‘I am delighted to have been welcomed by people in the traditional consumes of Mongolian queens and knights at the airport. Also, I tasted aaruul – a dairy product of Mongolia and liked it. On the way to city centre, I got caught in traffic jam, (laugh). In near future, I am planning to visit the Gobi Desert and ride a horse.’
The remaining 15 international visitors including Ivana Chubbuck, most of the ‘in-demand’ acting coaches in the business are expected to arrive in Ulaanbaatar from tomorrow. Ivana Chubbuck is well known for having coached Brad Pitt, Halle Berry and Charlize Theron.
