Remarks shared after Festival


I’ve heard
about the Clermont Ferrand international short film festival from other
directors who have been sponsored by NAE several years ago. Nowadays, some of
them have finished their first long feature film. So that I’m so excited to

I’ve heard

attend this festival this year.


I’m very
surprised that there are around 15 screening venues for this event. In Hong
Kong there’s no space for the short film festival. The audience are happy to
come and queue very early before each screening. We can see all kind of ages.
The festival posters are everywhere. French government did a great job for the
festival promotion.


I’ve seen
two screenings, one from Taiwan, another from England. The screening topics are
very diversified. The directors dig deep insight about human. The overall
standard is very high.


As for
Hongkong market screening, out of expectation, the audience are very warm. They
are very active, and they really enjoyed HK screening. Since It’s my first screening
in such an international festival, I’m so glad to see how foreign audience
think about my short film. After the screening, they asked me a lot of
interesting questions.


I would
like to thank NAE for giving me the chance to come to France. It’s a very good
experience for me.  In the future, I
would like to make a long feature film about a time travelling story, which
will be quite futuristic and science fiction style.
