Hong Kong’s very own Global Issues Network Conference is holding a film festival, and you are invited to join it!

The GIN 852 Film Festival is an opportunity for students to showcase films and video resources related to the GIN852 conference objectives. The conference aims to provide a basis for solving local Hong Kong issues, and to encourage long-term course of actions to combat urgent problems in Hong Kong. The theme for this year’s conference is “Sustainable Planning, Immediate Action”.

Powerful images can often tell a story in which words could not express. Films, advertisements, public service announcements and documentaries send powerful messages. Each school that participates in the conference is invited to submit a clear and concise short film. The film may be used as a representation of a project at our school, or a public service announcement about a critical issue.

The film is to be 1-3 minutes long. Possible ideas include:
• Documentary – A short documentary featuring real life events about an activity that your school has done to raise awareness or work towards solving a global problem.
• Short narrative film – A short film telling a story that is based around a global issue. Creative elements can be incorporated in the production.
• Public service announcement/Awareness video – A PSA highlighting a global issue and sends a strong message encouraging action.

Films are due by February 10 – they need to be submitted to Mr Muir , where we will then choose the best film from DC.
