Remarks shared after Festival visit

“In this overseas exchange, I have experienced and learnt a lot of new things, especially the communication with those local directors made me open my mind and changed my attitude towards different things. I have viewed many creative short films apart from Hong Kong, which allowed me to have a deep consideration for the topics of my work in the future. To the new directors, it is a valuable moment to enrich yourself and gain inspiration when every time you participate in the film festival. “

— Shared by Chan Mei-lin, director of Chuen Lau, after attending 37th Golden Harvest Awards & Short Film Festival in Taiwan, under the sponsorship of NAE.
