Remarks shared after Festival


I was the only
director presented at the post - screening sharing session in the Special
Screening Programme.I am happy to be welcomed by the Taiwan audience with rapid
questions and follow ups , they are open-minded and patient enough to
appreciate the arts of cinema.

Moreover, I
participated in different screenings, and spotted that the Taiwan general
public are very much interested to queue up for watching short films .. [More]

public are very much interested to queue up for watching short films . They are
respectful, active to discuss with the filmmakers.





Thanks to
NAEHK for sponsoring our travel expenses , encouraging filmmakers to
participate in such internationally well-known film festival. Without being
there in person, I would never know how Mandarin speaking audience (Taiwan
audience ) reacted to our Cantonese speaking films( the Hong Kong films), I
treasure the moment of cultural exchange.


Furthermore,
the Taiwan government are very active in supporting new generation of
filmmakers with funding sponsorship,and more importantly,there is a group of
passionate committee from the festival who work passionately to
promote the hard works of the filmmakers. Chances for filmmakers are around,
all we need to do is to take action.


Indeed, being part of the new generations of
filmmakers from Hong Kong, we are responsible to produce a more diversified
genre of films , which reflect our times of lives. I hope we won't forget
to strive hard for an international standard, such that we could
proudly promote our movies to overseas, that they are "made in
Hong Kong".

“I had
the chance to participate 69th Cannes Film Festival and watched a number of
premieres of official selections. Some of the works show the director's concern
in humanities that raise public's attention on social issues.

Besides,

enjoying an opening cinema on the seaside are a characteristic of Cannes
Film Festival.



This trip has refreshed my mind
and assured my goal as a filmmaker, to pursue in the art of storytelling .
While understanding the film market and networking with industry is also an
important duty a filmmaker couldn't omit. I will continue to make independent
short films as well as feature films, and looking forward to participate in
Cannes film festival in the future years.”
