Kiki is busy with her preparations for the Cavy World Cup. When, all of a sudden, the lights go out and the hairdryers no longer work, she has no choice but to let go of her tight schedule. Will she be able to win, or will love win her over?
Maria Philips (1993, Amsterdam) graduated from the University of the Arts Utrecht with her written and directed film 'WK Cavia’ (Cavy World Cup, 2017). Inspired by smaller, everyday stories and recognisable situations, Maria makes atmospheric and colourful film. With her films she wants to show worlds that were still unknown to the audience until then. Previously, she made the short film 'Tongen' (Snogging, 2016, featured during the Pink Film Days Amsterdam) and worked at multiple film sets. Cavy World Cup was nominated for the Special Jury Award at the Netherlands Film Festival.
