Distribution & Screening Enquiry

Remarks shared after Festival visit

The films screened in the film festival were of very high quality. I enjoyed a lot of great movies which were of international standard, especially those from the Short Film Corner had really amazed me –professional and considerable high shorts were produced under low budget and the support of similar resources. In addition, the host country and the locals were very enthusiastic towards film industry. They did not just share their production experiences, but also provided opportunities for young directors to exchange ideas. During the festival visit, I also encountered some foreign film producers and we shared the film production experiences. It is really horizons broadening for me to meet and know more directors from different countries, feel the atmosphere of large-scale film exhibition, it is an eye-opener. Hope in the future have the opportunity to participate in different film festivals.
