Distribution & Screening Enquiry

Remarks shared after Festival visit

“NAE has already sponsored us for several projects. And it’s the first time for us to attend such a famous festival. As we all know that Clermont Ferrand International Short Film Festival is the biggest one in Europe. During the whole stay, we kept learning how the festival and the short film market did work. We tried to figure out how we could distribute our film and how to make connections. We talked to all the potential partners and we took time to discuss with buyers, distributors and different organisations. We have to make contact every day. The first thing we promote is our production. We’ve opened our eyes to look for opportunities and before the trip sponsored by NAE, we had no idea that how European see Hong Kong film industry. We were glad that we had good feedback.

And the second thing is about our role as an educator. As teachers, we want our students enjoy making movies, that’s why we’ve brought the Security Guards Series to the festival because one of them is directed by our student. When we organised public screening in Hong Kong, we’ve also invited that student. We would like to follow this example and invite more students and show their work in front of the public. During our tour at the film market, we found that Italy, Spain, Republic of Czechoslovakia, Slovania, Poland, Korisha all got their own students film academy, which is a very good way to develop our project.

Besides the market, we wanted to watch more short films. We tried to understand the international standard norm for film selection, including the independent and the Labo category. We loved the Labo Competition which showcased the innovative way of the production. Some of them are going beyond the present concept which inspired us a lot for our own creation. Nowadays, this kind of works is very rare in Hong Kong, there is no such kind of high level competition dedicated to the Labo category.”
