ifva+ Independent Reboot
Dec: Independent Spirit in the Arts
16 / 12 / 2014 (Tue) | 7:30pm | McAulay Studio, Hong Kong Arts Centre

An independent spirit is essential for many artistic disciplines and throughout our daily lives. Taking such a spirit beyond films and videos in this open event, discussion topics come from cross-examination of the new and well-established members in four closely-knitted industries to discover what independent spirit means today in film, theater, music and new media. How does independent spirit manifest in and react to Hong Kong’s current situation? What is its current state and future development?
