开幕电影:我们一起爱自主-第十九届ifva独立短片及影像媒体节

A story may not have an ending, but it definitely has a beginning. So does ifva. Veteran scriptwriter and critic Lam Kee-to now curates a programme of eight shorts from the many award-winning films - or stories - from the beginning of ifva.

The story of ifva starts in 1995. So let's revisit ifva's very first gold award winning piece Long Distance by Vincent Chui and Alex Lai. Raman Hui, "Father of Shrek," and Toe Yuen who is behind all McMug movies were indeed winners at the 2nd ifva. Throughout the years, many of the past ifva winners have made their names in Hong Kong's cultural, or even entertainment, scene. Pang Ho-cheng and Cheuk Wan-chi, two of the pop icons, together with works by Heiward Mak, Mak Yuen-yan and Yau Ching, whose efforts are widely recognised in their own remits, eight intriguing short films by eight engaging storytellers will offer audience the best from the ifva story.
