Remarks shared after Festival visit


''Cannes Film Festival is one of the most famous and well-arranged film festival in the world. The local short film productions sets a very high standard for quality and versatility. During the festival, there are different activities and screenings every day which was a valuable chance to observe and understand the film industry. The French are passionate about movies with enormous knowledge of the subject that enhance the atmosphere of the festival. The film festival has greatly impacted in encouraging filmmakers to continue the art of filmmaking. Thanks to the financial support by Hong Kong New Action Express, so that the filmmakers have the opportunity to learn from the world's different cultures. Hope that the NAE project may continue sponsoring Hong Kong filmmakers and promote Hong Kong movies and culture abroad. ''
