ifva has always aspires to nurture and encourage exchanges among creative media talents and practitioners. We will invite world-class film masters to conduct Master Class, providing local creative media talents an opportunity to learn and work closely with a master.
The 17th ifva is honoured to invite Mark Lee Ping-bin, the critically acclaimed Taiwanese cinematographer to give a sharing in the festival. Highly acclaimed by Director Hou Hsiao-hsien as a professional and meticulous Cinematographer, and crowned by film critics and general spectators as the Poet of Light and Shadow, the experienced Master Mark Lee Ping-bin will come to share the paths and journeys of his over 25 years wonderful career. You can hardly find any negative criticisms for the Master from any film directors he collaborated with – the charisma sprung from his philosophy, the highly appreciated aesthetics he shows on the big screens reveal his calmness, determination yet ever self-challenging spirit, and of course, his attitude towards people around him.
The sharing session was held on 15 March 2013 at the agnès b. CINEMA, Hong Kong Arts Centre.
The master class was instructed on a one-to-one basis on skills of editing of long and short films. It was held in March 2013 during the festival period.
The 15th ifva and the HKAIFF is honoured to invite Mary STEPHEN, the long-time film editor of internationally renowned maestro Éric ROHMER, to host the “Creative Editing as Audiovisual Creative Writing” Master Class in Hong Kong. Through her seminar, classes and one-to-one meeting, participants would be able to learn and explore the aesthetics of editing and moving images from the veteran film editor who has been working extensively with numerous independent filmmakers from countries such as Canada, France, China and Turkey. To conclude with a public screening with all new works produced by the participants and Mary STEPHEN’s new film.
