Distribution & Screening Enquiry

Remarks shared after Festival visit

I am so happy and amazed to see that Gay / queer films are more than Gay/ queer films now. Apart from love and tragedy, there are elements of different film genre, such as thriller, suspense and Zombie. And the themes are not just about the oppression and suppression they have, but also about race, class and other social minorities. In addition, the skills and techniques applied to the films are also quite mature. I believe it is only possible when lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people are able to live with the mainstream majority in inclusion and harmony that has helped them to have a broadened mind beyond their own realities. It is a pleasure to be able to meet with foreign queer film filmmakers. And I am pleased to have participated in a film festival that was not just about film screenings, but which has also gathered many different independent filmmakers. I hope that Hong Kong can have more different platforms and opportunities such that the veteran and emerging filmmakers can gather together, exchange ideas and collaborate with each other, so as to continue the legend of Hong Kong films.
