Remarks shared after Festival visit

"First time to attend the Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival in France, this is a great experience for me.

First, this is an important chance to promote Hong Kong short film to the world. Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival involves a well-known big short film market that attracts the producers and short filmmaker come every year. We are provided with a market booth and 3 screenings. Our Hong Kong team visits different booth form different countries to share our works to them.

Through the screening, audience could have chances to watch Hong Kong short films and to know more about our culture such as our politic environment, our living environment, what pressure Hong Kong are facing. And the Q&A sessions can enhance the interaction between the filmmakers and audience.

Second, this is a great chance for the Hong Kong filmmakers to learn more from the foreign short films. There are lots of screenings with different categories, different countries. Hong Kong filmmakers can watch some outstanding works which is a very good experience.

French short film culture has a long history. It influences many people not only domestically but internationally.

The short film is still very small in scale in Hong Kong. We still need today much effort to motivate this category to Hong Kong people. For example, there should be more short film screenings in theatres and short film competitions in order to attract people to join."
