Remarks shared after Festival


透過 NAE 資助,能夠參與到台北電影節十分高興,特別出席了男演員的座談分享會,與台灣的演員交流也獲益良多。今次代表香港到台北角逐男主角獎,感到十分榮幸。雖然沒有獲獎,但能夠入圍已經很高興。對於影人來說,能夠親身出席電影節十分重要,除了觀摩其他電影外,還能夠與其他影人流,還有媒體報導。接受台灣媒體訪問,分享人生經驗,大概是這行程的特別收穫。

Golden Horse Awards are among the most prestigious and influential film awards in the world of Chinese language cinema. Through the support of NAE, I was honoured to be representing An Old Man and a Dog, a nominated film for the Best Live Action Short Film, as its cinematographer to attend the Festival.

During the trip, I was able to communicate and exchange with the young taiwan film critics. I found that they have broader horizons comparing with the mainstream film critics in Hong Kong. There I also learnt from the representatives of Taipei Film Commission that they have been collaborating with non-taiwanese filmmakers in filmmaking, in which certain support would be provided. I looked forward to have an opportunity to work with them as I always have a thought of either filming or post-producing (or both) a film in one of my upcoming works in Taiwan.
