Aet Laigu (aka Al Wallcat)
Al Wallcat is the alter ego of producer Aet Laigu. As Al, she has written and co-written many scripts for films that have been official selections at multiple international film festivals, including the prominent Tribeca Film Festival in Manhattan.
She holds a degree in film from the University of Warwick, as well as degrees in business and English. She has independently produced films for official selection at the Cannes Film Festival, and her film Ema (Mother) was Estonia’s official entry for Academy Award consideration in 2017.
Aet fell in love with the magic of cinema at an early age, and believes the power of storytelling can change lives, even when the topics we talk about might be uncomfortable, or unheard of. She has worked as an independent producer for more than ten years and established her own production company, Meteoriit, four years ago.
