Remarks shared after Festival visit

“South Taiwan Film Festival has adopted a remarkable curatorial value. They are putting a lot focus on humanity perspectives, other than on the completeness and entertaining elements of works and they are also concerning for the modern society development. I have met the organizer of the festival and he really supports Hong Kong Independent films. Besides, I have met some of the new independent directors in Taiwan and I got to know about their working and creation environment. Generally, people would like to see works with really high level of completion and directors with well-developed skills and experience. However, it is really interesting that this festival is welcoming greenhorns and diversity and is so open to criticism.”

— Shared by Wong Cheuk-man, director of Piled Cloud after attending the South Taiwan Film Festival in Taiwan under the sponsorship of NAE.

“The discussion section after screening lasted for an hour. Our topics included but not limited to film narration, filming style, Hong Kong present creative industry and mode of film co-production. Some audience even proposed that good movie does not necessarily need to have political elements. This direct and objective discussion is really a blast to my mind. Reflecting to the post-screening discussion in Hong Kong, it is mostly one-way and passive. I hope that in the near future, audience in Hong Kong could have this kind of in-depth discussion. “
