Film description

A set of the best short films made by the youngest generation of Hong Kong filmmakers, chosen from the winners of the Fresh Wave project.

The project  was implemented in 2005, with Johnnie To and Hong Kong Arts Development Council as its patrons. The proposals chosen from among the entries receive funding and expert supervision, and the completed films take part in a yearly competition - a barometer of what is new and fresh in the cinema, but also of the issues important for the new generation. The films chosen for the 9th Five Flavours FF include original, thrilling genre films, but also stories connected to current social issues.

The screenings will be accompanied by meetings with the filmmakers.
