Journey to the Fest

Film and media students from Hong Kong and other Asian countries have a golden opportunity to visit major international film festivals by participating in Journey to the Fest. Getting involved in Journey to the Fest, students can attend various festival events, such as Filmmaker’s Talk and Event Tea Party. They at the same time can talk to and interact with filmmakers, attend festival events and screenings, visit film-related institutions, and network with professionals from around the region. The programme allows students to gain deeper understanding and first-hand experience of the industry.


AFAA has collaborated with Busan International Film Festival, Taipei Golden Horse Film Festival Executive Committee, Tokyo International Film Festival and Singapore International Film Festival to organize the programme since 2015. AFAA also liaises with other film festivals to offer more opportunities for participating students to understand their visions.
