Technological advances have allowed many to make their own films. Movie-viewing culture and habits are also evolving rapidly. We can no longer define independent film based on the mode of production. Sometimes I think maybe we need a new name to usher in a new era? But in recent years, the word “independent” has become more contentious in Hong Kong. So to continue using “independent film” in our name seems like taking a stance already.
It has never been easy for independent film to enter commercial cinemas. In the past two years, some enormously popular independent films have been turned down by cinemas for their political themes. We do not have the luxury to deliberate the merits of separating art and politics. Perhaps screening is already an action!
Many young filmmakers have shown their talents in their previous works. Yet because of commercial considerations, they have not been recruited by the film industry for more opportunities to film with a bigger budget. With the Hong Kong Independent Film Festival, we hope to support them by screening independent works from Hong Kong and other countries, allowing them to continue to create.
We are not seeking development. But we want to defend this place.
