Remarks shared after Festival visit

"The overall comment for the trip is very good. I met many local peoples at Santiago, and some international filmmakers. Audience are very different from Hong Kong, they are more focus on the animation, how you study the situation of the children, then they will try to share the same case in their country to discuss the meaning behind the animation but not very much on technical issues. Some of the filmmakers ask about the saturation of Youth people, Hong Kong culture and history issues in Hong Kong."
