Remarks shared after Festival visit


"It was my very first time to present my «Never Stop» in France and to attend Clermont Ferrand Short Film Festival. «Never Stop» started from a competition which aimed to promote Hong Kong local innovative technology. So I shot a story about a cycling team and I was very lucky to win the prize. It was a good starting point. This time, thanks to NAE’s sponsoring, I had chance to attend such a high level festival which gave me an overall insight about how we can explore the market, how other countries and people present their short films to the world.

I watched several international, regional screenings. The city of Clermont Ferrand provides a lot of opportunities to their citizens to explore different cultures around the world. And the audience doesn’t hesitate to express their opinions about the film which helped me to know more what they thought about my production. While in Hong Kong, we live in a society with a sonic lifestyle. People get bored easily towards a long tempo movie. They are more interested in commercial films. Unfortunately, short films don’t have a large market. But in Clermont Ferrand International Short Film Festival, people are willing to spend more than an hour to wait in the queue.



My major at university is advertising and I’m also studying shooting. During the international screening, I’ve watched many short films about different cultures, countries and cities. I’m curious about the local culture in Clermont as well, so I even talked with local people about my micro film, and tried to understand the lifestyle here. However, I noticed that they knew only few things about Hong Kong apart from the free port, the economic center and Jackie Chan. These exchanges gave me the inspiration to shoot my own film about Hong Kong local culture to promote Hong Kong and its tradition.



As a final-year student, the most important thing for me is to absorb new information every day. During the festival, I’ve explored a lot of possibilities which I can definitely bring back to Hong Kong to create my own short film.
