Objectifs Filmmaker-In-Residence 2017

Friday 3 February 2017, 7.30pm to 9pm
Workshop Space
Admission:  Free. RSVP here.

Join us for a chat with Chan Tze Woon, our filmmaker-in-residence, who will speak about his work as a documentary filmmaker in Hong Kong. He will screen clips from his short films, and excerpts from his latest documentary feature Yellowing, which was nominated for Best Documentary at the Golden Horse Film Awards.

Tze Woon will talk about his personal journey as a filmmaker, and working as an independent filmmaker in Hong Kong. He will also talk about the political climate in Hong Kong, and documentaries about social resistance.

The Objectifs Filmmaker Residency is a reciprocal programme, where Objectifs partners an overseas arts institution to host an international filmmaker, and our international partner will host a Singapore filmmaker in turn. This year, our international partner is Hong Kong Arts Centre.
