''Cannes Film Festival is one of the most
famous and well-arranged film festival in the world. The local short film
productions sets a very high standard for quality and versatility. During the
festival, there are different activities and screenings every day which was a
valuable chance to observe and understand the film industry. The French are
passionate about movies with enormous knowledge of the subject that enhance the
atmosphere of the festival. The film festival has greatly impacted in
encouraging filmmakers to continue the art of filmmaking. Thanks to the
financial support by Hong Kong New Action Express, so that the filmmakers have
the opportunity to learn from the world's different cultures. Hope that the NAE
project may continue sponsoring Hong Kong filmmakers and promote Hong Kong
movies and culture abroad. ''
