HKBU Academy of Film launches 7th Seeds Project at Masterclass-cum-Kick-off Ceremony


The 7th “INNO-Action! HKBU Academy of Film Seeds Project” organised by the Academy of Film, School of Communication, Hong Kong Baptist University under the sponsorship of Create Hong Kong of the HKSAR Government officially kicked off on 3 March. 
Officiating at the ceremony were: Miss Loretta Yuen Kit-ling, Principal Management Service Officer of the Efficiency Unit of the HKSAR Government; Mr Lam Kin-hung, Project Coordinator of the Seeds Project and Senior Lecturer of HKBU Academy of Film; director and scriptwriter Ms Tam Wai-ching; and actor Mr Ng Siu-hin. 
The theme of this year’s Seeds Project is “Imagination Unlimited”. In his speech delivered at the kick-off ceremony, Mr Lam encouraged participating students to try something new when they are still young and think outside the box to bring about more ingenious possibilities.
A masterclass was held on the same occasion with the director and scriptwriter and the actor of the film In Your Dreams, Ms Tam Wai-ching and Mr Ng Siu-hin as guest speakers. They shared their experience with the audience who gained valuable insights into techniques in film creation and production.
In Your Dreams was the winning film project in the Higher Education Institution Group of the 2nd First Feature Film Initiative organised by Create Hong Kong. Ms Tam and her team received funding from the Film Development Fund to make their first commercial feature film, In Your Dreams. It was commercially released in Hong Kong early this year and won popular acclaim. 
A lecture on documentary and seven workshops are now open for application. The Digital Short Video Competition also welcomes all local secondary school students to submit entries by forming production teams from the same or different secondary schools. There is no restriction on the topic. The deadline for submission of entries is 7 September 2018. 
The Seeds Project aims at nurturing the creativity of secondary school students and enhancing their aesthetic appreciation and artistic knowledge. It also aims to enable them to understand the film and video production industry and provide them with a platform for interaction and exchange. The 7th Seeds Project will last for one year with a range of activities including a masterclass, a lecture on documentary film, video production workshops, a digital short video competition, industry and extended learning experience occasions, and more.
