Distribution & Screening Enquiry

Remarks shared after Festival visit

“Take part in the Film Festival can broaden our horizons, so that we understand the local film culture, and people around the world deepen our own views and opinions on the film. I think it is useful to local film students or makers to broaden their horizons. At the same time, we know and make friends with local film makers and students. I think the Hong Kong art Center should provide more chance for local film makers and film students to join the festival from all over the world. Because the film makers and film students should know their limitation in Hong Kong. As we know, there are lots of film festivals in the world, you don't go outside, you never know about how your own film is. The filmmakers would give you many good comments and you can meet some famous director and got many things from their shooting experience.”
