Remarks shared after Festival visit


"This is my first time of attending such Festival; the 4th Taipei Frank Festival is an art festival in general with a wide variety of art form presentations. It is a valuable chance for the participation of this project for me as a new director. I have a chance to see the world, which is impossible and not easy for me in the past. This great experience can inspire my production in future very much."

— Shared by Ng Wai-cheong Stanley, director of Fading Flame – The Disappearance of Funeral Industry in Wanchai after attending the 4th Taipei Frank Festival in Taiwan, under the sponsorship of NAE.

"NAE helps me to have chance to share my production in North Iceland, audience there are so positive on my production related to oriental culture about death, and impressed by it. This encourages my production and promotes my film to all over the world, exploring the unexplored. Let people know about Hong Kong more than the commercial action or drama films but also short independent documentaries. "
