Making-Of Fund

2021 1st Micro-Film Original Script Funding Program (Comedy)

Awards

The best screenplay will receive a 50,000 HKD filming subsidy bonus

Does the movie have filmmakers first and then movies? Will there be an audience before a movie? A movie must be seen in a cinema to be called a movie? The answer is to look at you! The world has changed, and movies will not decline, only the un-evolved mindset will decline. Only with changes can movies continue to spread around the world in a new form. Movies are influence. Movies are the stage where stars are born. Our ShowTimes hopes to contribute to the world film industry

Script-the script of a drama

Indispensable to a movie is the screenwriter. The famous screenwriter Steven Spielberg once said, “If you only show the audience, the audience is hard to be pleased; but if you give them a good story, they are easily satisfied.

Hong Kong Director's Quotes

    Johnnie To Kei Fung

    When I make a movie, I just hope that the movie will have a longer lifespan. It will be watched in fifty or a hundred years. It has nothing to do with the box office or awards.

      Wong Jing

      All the people who are funny in movies are stuffy in life. Chaplin, Zhou Xingchi and him all conform to this theorem.

        Andrew Lau

        Making movies is the same as life, I think there is no problem. There are ups and downs in life, and it is impossible for every movie to be up. It is possible that the downswing is an opportunity for us to reflect on ourselves, and reflect on how we should shoot in-depth things.
