Distribution & Screening Enquiry

Remarks shared after Festival visit

It is an honour to participate in the Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival with the aid of NAE. I was just a secondary student who did not really know any knowledge or technique in filmmaking, so I am very surprised to be selected by the festival. Thanks to NAE’s support to young directors, we were able to screen our work on an international platform, while local screening is already a hard thing to do. After the screening, we had a long discussion with several audiences about film production and creation. Their questions reminded me of my past and aspiration for film. And there was a group of Chinese students who showed their interests in the political environment in Hong Kong. My intention of making this film is to share my prospect of Hong Kong to the audience and I think this screening makes my film complete.
