Jockey Club ifva Everywhere
ifva+ Seminar I: Screening Platforms of the Times
12/11/2015 (Thu) | 7:30pm | agnès b. Cinema
Free of Charge | Conduct in Cantonese | Seat Reservation is needed.

The popularity of social media and online platforms has changed the habits and film viewing experiences of the audience. With an inner fire sparked off by their creative drive, artists have overcome difficult production circumstances and broken through constraints in subject matters, venues and resources, without compromising their artistic visions. What supports them from within is that they cherish the communications with audience through their films.

ifva+ Seminar I has invited Yau Hawk-sau (Director of Battle at the Lion Rock), the brain behind Mocking Jer, and Leung Chung-man (Director of Gwangong VS Alien) of G.V.A. Creative. The online hit rates of these two titles even outnumbered the attendance of mainstream motion pictures. Both being ifva Awards finalists, how do they manage to create independent platforms outside of conventional screening channels? How do they keep their voices throughout their creative journeys? Two new generation artists will share their experiences.

Moderator: Ryan Lau
Guests: Yau Hawk-sau (Mocking Jer), Leung Chung-man (G.V.A. Creative)
