Academy of Film graduate wins top award in international documentary film festival

電影學院畢業生勇奪國際影展最高榮譽

School of Communication’s Academy of Film 2013 graduate Chan Tze-woon (Master of Fine Arts in Film, Television and Digital Media) received New Asian Currents Ogawa Shinsuke Prize for his documentary film Yellowing at the 15th Yamagata International Documentary Film Festival (YIDFF) in Japan.
 
Yellowing is a documentary film about the occupy movement which took place in 2014 in Hong Kong. The film previously won the Award for Young Artist (Film) of Hong Kong Arts Development Awards 2016 and was nominated for Best Documentary at the 53rd Golden Horse Film Festival held in November last year. 
 
New Asian Currents of YIDFF introduces and supports the works of up-and-coming Asian documentary filmmakers. The most promising work will be awarded the Ogawa Shinsuke Prize. The award is named in honour of the late film director Ogawa Shinsuke who was instrumental in the creation of the YIDFF and devoted much of his energy to facilitating exchanges among Asian documentarists.
