The 20th ifva Awards - Finalist Showcases

Animation Category
19/3 (Thu) 7:30pm | agnès b. CINEMA

“It seems that everyone is consciously returning to the most fundamental elements of creation, undertaking the most primal exploration of tools and images. Such a change also implies that the individual, distinct character of the animator can emerge through the works.” comments one of the judges, Justin Wong.
Reality could be hurting so we let animation open up a broader realm of imagination. Let animations take us on a journey among birth and death, crime and punishment, and love and desire.

Asian New Force Category
20/3 (Fri) 7:15pm | agnès b. CINEMA

An Iranian girl missing her dad, Syrian kids living in displaced camps, Chinese mum fighting against pollution, Malaysian boy leaving his past behind…
As jury member Ying Liang said “Ten years ago, I was a participant of the Asian New Force Category. Ten years later, the overall quality of this category has drastically improved. As I watched the entries, I cannot help but thinking that I need to improve again.”
Ten Asian directors tell their stories through their own lenses.
  Youth Category
21/3 (Sat) 1:30pm | agnès b. CINEMA

Youth is the bravery to live the moment without any fear. “What makes this year’s ifva especially pleasant is that we see a lot of sincere and genuine works, reflecting the thoughts of a generation. It is the voice of the new generation.” concluded Eric Poon, jury of Youth Category.
These short films boldly showcase the school, family and social issues faced by youth through their own lenses which also are pieces of adults’ shared memories.
