Established by the Ground Up Film Society, the New Cinema Collective is working with the Hong Kong Arts Centre to spark new inspiration and insight amongst Hong Kong young filmmakers. Through case studies of Asian independent and art film productions and conversations with industry professionals, this programme seeks to illuminate new possibilities in the local film production scene, and offer new perspectives to emerging filmmakers.
Organized as three thematic strands—Co-production, Post-production, and International Distribution, the programme presents more than 20 films from Southeast Asia, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and China. Combining in-person and live stream screenings, connect with a talented pool of film professionals from all over the city and across Asia through post-screening talks, masterclasses, and panel discussions. From now until 28 March, visit the Hong Kong Arts Centre or iSquare mall for an immersive in-house viewing, and keep an eye out for online updates via their website!
