The 4th International Film Festival & Awards‧Macao (IFFAM) takes place from December 5 to 10. The IFFAM organizing committee vigorously gears up for the event, which features the “20th Anniversary Macao Special Presentations” as a special highlight of this year’s program.
The IFFAM Organizing Committee stated that a brand-new section titled “20th Anniversary Macao Special Presentations” unfolds in the Film Festival this year to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the Establishment of the Macao Special Administrative Region. A selection of local films will be screened in this non-competition section, to bring outstanding local film productions into the limelight on the international stage, showcasing the diverse dynamic of the cultural and creative industries in Macau while paying tribute to the city’s film industry.
Local audiences will be drawn by a colorful and exciting program, while international guests and industry professionals will not only get to taste the excitement of Macau as a destination but meet the Chinese and Asian industries and explore the best of new films from Asia. The industry experts in the organizing team will help film-makers and industry from both sides of the globe to get to know each other in the informal atmosphere of Macau.
The festival will feature great directors and stars across its program, but the competition will hone in on first and second-time film-makers who are likely to attend and likely to remember Macau for their future films. By drawing attention to their work, the festival spotlight and cash prize become more meaningful than for more established directors. Looking back at the last year, you can see that there are many brilliant first and second films like Raw, Get Out, Son Of Saul, Embrace Of The Serpent, From Afar, The Witch, Lady Macbeth, Old Stone, Moonlight, The Hounds Of Love, The Girl With All The Gifts, Aquarius, The Bad Batch and The Rider, to name a few.
When: December 5–10, 2019
