Remarks shared after Festival visit


“As a graduate student of the director's department, I especially admire French director Jean Luc Godard and the long-shot theory of the European film aesthetics. The ‘mise-en-scene’ of the new wave movies has always been my pursuit. I have also planned to study in France. I have heard of Clermont International Short Film Festival a long time ago. I feel so honoured to get the support from Create Hong Kong (CreateHK) of the Hong Kong government and have such a great opportunity to attend the festival with NAE team. I feel that my dream has come true.

The artwork that I brought to France aims to share the memory of Hong Kong. Hong Kong is a fast-growing metropolitan. I wish to use my camera to capture memories of Hong Kong cityscape before the construction of the underground and to share this unique Hong Kong culture with the international audience. The NAE market screening provides an opportunity to communicate with the audience. Their applause is the biggest recognition for us. After the screening, there were Q&A session and the cocktail party. To my surprise, the international audience didn’t leave early, they even stayed almost an hour to interact with us. I found it deeply moving.

I really enjoyed the ambience of the Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival. In France, watching short films has formed a culture. One of the most impressive screening took place in a university. The screening hall was quite large, there were many audience, at all ages. The motivation of the overseas audience watching the short films is quite pure and devoted. I sincerely hope that one day I can share my artwork with more movie lovers in such a large screening venue.

Thanks to the NAE invitation, I was able to see superb high quality international short films in just a few days. This trip also inspired me to continue to create, I will devote my whole life to pursue the path of film-making.”
