The Asian Film Awards Academy confirmed an expansion of its program to send young local film professionals overseas for training in postproduction services, and urged interested candidates to apply for the program.


The AFA Academy’s Young Film Professionals Overseas Training Program began in 2016 with support from Create Hong Kong and the Film Development Fund. Two local professionals in the fields of visual effects (VFX) and sound effects were sent to Germany to train in a distinguished European film postproduction studio, enabling them to consolidate their expertise and foster cross-regional exchanges.


Following 2016’s success, the scale of the program had expanded in 2017 to cover a wider array of postproduction disciplines, namely color grading, visual effects and sound effects. The AFA Academy send some young professionals overseas in 2017-2018. The AFA Academy General Manager, Ms Josie Lin said, “We want to give young Hong Kong professionals the opportunity of overseas exposure at the early stage of their careers, not only to learn state of the art technology but also to network and develop international relationships that will be of mutual benefit in the future. We are looking for candidates who have the potential to advance in their careers and help the development of the local industry.”


The AFA Academy has secured the cooperation of four eminent German film studios including Rotor Film, which boasts the largest grading and mixing stage in Europe. Its productions include Palme d’Or winning The Square (2017) and the sequel to Iron Sky, Iron Sky: The Coming Race (2018). Another studio partner is the widely acclaimed Trixter. Its VFX projects include Hollywood superhero installments Spider-Man, Marvels’s The Avengers, Captain America and Ant-man. The Post Republic, the Academy’s studio partner last year, will join the Academy’s program again this year. It has been involved in more than 150 productions including Land of Mine (2015), Oscar winning The Imitation Game (2014), Omar (2014), Palme d’Or winning Winter Sleep (2014) and Golden Lion nominated Francofonia (2015).


In 2018, selected candidates in the AFA Academy’s Young Film Professionals Overseas Training Program engage in a six-month professional training in either Berlin or Potsdam in Germany.
