Every year, several outstanding short films and animations are produced and have received awards in Hong Kong, their creativity and efforts deserve recognitions both locally and abroad, not to mention many other excellent titles yet to be discovered. Now, Hong Kong independent filmmakers and animators are being offered a big step forward.

"Hong Kong Short Film: New Action Express"
is a scheme launched by the Hong Kong Arts Centre aiming to promote excellent Hong Kong short films and videos locally and abroad. By sponsoring local talents to attend international film festivals and first-class cultural events, they will be introduced to global audiences and to engage in rewarding exchanges. Talents as such form the backbone of our creative industries, who make Hong Kong a unique and vibrant creative hub in Asia.

ifva+ Dec: Storytelling — How to interpret a story?

The same basic story can take on vastly divergent forms depending on the times, choice of actors or other factors, which results in totally different viewing experience for the audience. The third seminar centres around how even an adapted story can result in different versions, just like in Rashomon(1950), when different authors inject it with their own ideas and styles. The seminar will also cover how to anticipate the audience’s reactions and effectively communicate with the public.
