HONG KONG SHORT FILM: NEW ACTION EXPRESS – Local Short Film Highlights and Seminar on Pitching Strategies for Film Festivals and Markets

 
This August, NAE is bringing to you a series of local short film online screenings and an online seminar on pitching strategies for film festivals and markets! 
 
Production fund raising and project collaboration seeking may be a few of vital challenges that most young filmmakers struggle with. Hereby filmmakers and professionals will share in the seminar their experiences on pitching strategies and further network expansion at international festivals and markets. By sharing individual foresights to industry fellows, the seminar hopes to bring together young filmmakers and professionals in the industries to examine potential addresses for filmmaker’s further development and creation. Screenings on local-awarded short film titles will be held along with the seminar. Over 20 local short films that have exposed to various festivals overseas will be brought back and offer you special online film screenings. Directors will also share their experience and inspiration gained from the overseas festivals at the after-screening discussions. 
 
Come and join us to explore more on festivals and markets pitching with the industry fellows for individual professional development in the film industry!
