This film festival offers Macau audiences the opportunity to enjoy the latest outstanding films by students from Mainland China, Macau, Hong Kong and Taiwan. This is definitely a special and rare film festival in Macau. 27 films will be screened, some of which won important film festival awards. “Future Roads — Cross-Strait cum Hong Kong and Macao College Student Film Festival” is organized by Cinematheque Passion,
Award-winning films include: Home Swim Home, from the Beijing Film Academy, Safety First from Taiwan’s Shih Hsin University, 17 Years from Hong Kong City University, and The Net from the University of Macau.
Given the different social and cultural context of the four regions, audiences will get a glimpse of the different thinking of these young people and the messages they are trying to convey in moving images. It will be an interesting and thought-provoking viewing experience. The festival is also a good platform for secondary school students who are interested in studying film or television at college level.
The films cover a wide variety of characteristics and story ideas, such as: space and sci-fi, the impact of AI and Internet for modern people, key opinion leaders on the Internet, father and son relationships, high school students’ love affairs, air-pollution and environmental protection, and humanitarian works at the grassroots level. All the stories are very close to our daily lives, giving us a sense of the thinking of young students from 4 places. Of the 27 works, three are remarkably imaginative and creative animations.
