Remarks shared after Festival


I am extremely grateful to the NAE and Hong Kong Arts Centre for sponsoring this trip. Without them, it would be hard to bare the burden of all the financials for the trip, especially as an artist working in this city.

I am extremely grateful to the NAE and Hong Kong Arts Centre for sponsoring this trip. Without them, it would be hard to bare the burden of all the financials for the trip, especially as an artist working in this city. My first short film premiered in Hollywood in front of a foreign audience. This was the first public screening my film has ever seen and the first global screening for me as an emerging filmmaker.

As the director and writer of this film "Asparagus", I received the opportunity to gain valuable feedback during the session with many comments coming from other international filmmakers and directors alike. The afterparties were also valuable opportunities in the sense that I was able to network with other festival contestants and participants. I met different filmmakers from Denmark, Mexico, Bolivia and Brazil.


I even casted the actors and filmed for my second short film "St. Monica" while I was in LA. The value and exposure attending this festival has granted to me is simply incalculable, and the importance for me being here and participating can be seen through the ripple effect this will have on my career.
