Remarks shared after Festival visit


“What I found most rewarding about the festival was its Q&A component of both my own and other people's work. It was very interesting and educational for me to learn from different cultures and their viewpoints. I had the privilege to collaborate with a number of Italian artists on the spot. We shared our different working styles and artistic creation processes. Most importantly, I am convinced by the beauty of cultural diversity in art and hope to continue exploring cultural diversity in my future work.

Italy is definitely a beautiful and historical country. I can see how their culture, environment influence their art and fashion. It’s a great experience, we have opportunity to show our film two times, one in the festival and the other one at the university, and we held a workshop to share our working process and talk about our HK culture.

As a choreographer and professional dancer, dance for me is another language. By dancing I can express all the emotions. Dance has no boundary and is an international language. I’m very lucky to produce a short film which can combine my passion. It’s all about the movement.

When I worked with my team, I really enjoyed the collaboration of all my staffs. Thanks to all of them, we can bring this music video to Clermont Ferrand International Short Film Festival. The spirit of NAE programme is the same: to share with each other. Thanks to this festival visit opportunity offered by NAE, I am able to meet other Hong Kong directors during the trip. Some of them are teachers, animators and talented film school students. At the end of the trip, we became friends and we made a solid connection. They might be the potential collaborators for my upcoming projects! That’s what I’ve expected for this trip! Besides our NAE group, I’ve met professionals from all over the world. An Italian composer was very interested in my work and in collaborating with me in the future.

This short film festival is a very huge event and a real melting pot. The international competitions are awesome! The screening at the George Conchon Theatre had a huge success. Some of the audience told me that they really enjoyed the choreography, the style and the music. An old lady said that the black and white image and the music recalled her 20’s back to 1960s. That was exactly what I’ve expected for the screening, even there was no dialogue in my music video, people were free to imagine by themselves.
