Distribution & Screening Enquiry

Remarks shared after Festival visit

“The NAE supported me in the trip to KLEX2014 thus I had chance to approach the audience in Kuala Lumpur. It's my first time to bring my documentary works for screening there and got much positive rewards from the audience. The audience's response is out of my expectation. They are keen on discussing the documentary work of me and very encouraging comments to me. They like documentaries very much. By the way, the organizer also arranged the event very well, this is also a support to me as visiting to a place I've never visited before, the reception helped me to commit in the Festival so that had a good time to interact with the audience. Only flying to the city for screening and encountering with audience by yourself can find out the real responses directly, helping me in future production with their comments. The positive feedback is also a driving force for me to walk on in my career. Face to face interaction for screening event is then so important for independent directors.”

— Shared by Ng Wai-cheong Stanley, director of The Heart Attack of HK after attending KLEX: 5th Kuala Lumpur Experimental Film and Video Festival in Malaysia, under the sponsorship of NAE.
