In the past decade, Hong Kong has seen a growing number of first-time or emerging filmmakers. To help young filmmakers build a long-term sustainable career and to meet the needs of an increasingly diversified audience culture and film industry, the Hong Kong Arts Centre (HKAC) sees a pertinent need to assist filmmakers to expand their professional and personal horizons, enrich their crafts, network and get recognised on local and international levels. In 2019, coinciding with the 50th Anniversary of the Cannes Directors’ Fortnight, one of the world’s most prestigious and influential breeding grounds for accomplished filmmakers, the HKAC presents New Waves, New Shores: Cannes Directors’ Fortnight 50 Meets Hong Kong Cinema. Guests include Pierre-Henri Deleau (Co-Founder of Cannes Directors’ Fortnight), Yov Moor (Colourist, Jinpa) and others. There will be screenings, talks, workshops and masterclasses to offer a comprehensive film appreciation experience for our audience.
