Remarks shared after Festival visit

The Short Film Corner is a place for filmmakers to showcase their films and seek opportunities for sale and distribution and has drawn thousands of entries every year. It is a wonderful opportunity for learning as it also enables exchanges among filmmakers. I met a French film producer and a Spanish director there. Their sharing after watching my short film made me understand more about film in terms of production and as an art form. After returning to Hong Kong, I received an email from the French distributor Gonella Productions. They found my short film very interesting after watching it in Cannes and would like to distribute it. I was grateful to their offer and I signed a worldwide distribution agreement with them. The film is now being distributed in different broadcasting platforms. I hope it can reach out to audience around the world so that more people may appreciate the efforts and talents of the cast and crew.

Attending international film festivals enable exchanges with other filmmakers and wider opening to the world. Thanks to HONG KONG SHORT FILM: NEW ACTION EXPRESS for the opportunity. Hope that the scheme can be maintained and more filmmakers can benefit from these trips.

“Montecatini International Short Film Festival is the oldest film festival in the world. It is my great honour to be selected to join the festival. Competing with the other outstanding works from all over the world, it is really beyond my expectation that I could even get an award in the festival! It made me reassure that filmmaking is an outcome of a collective effort. Without the participation of my crew and cast, this film could never get such a good result. I would like to thank all of my cast and crew once again. This trip has also become my incentive to continue my hard work and try my best to produce more excellent films for the audience in the future.”

“Figueira Film Art-Festival de Cinema da Figueira da Foz is the most influential film festival in Portugal with 31 years of history. For some reasons, it was closed in 2002 which was a pity for film lovers. Fortunately, I was able to join this time since it has resumed 3 years ago. I could feel the passion of the organizer. They have tried very hard to do the screenings in the cinemas but they failed as there were not enough cinemas in downtown. I sincerely hope that they could succeed in the coming year.”
