Happenings at 5th InDPanda 2009, Hong Kong

27 08 2009

Had a wonderful time and screening in Hong Kong for the 5th InDPanda 2009! 🙂 Many thanks to festival directors, Jonathan Hung & Henry Chan, for inviting my film “失去愛” (Love Lost) and myself for the festival. I had to cut short my stay and fly to Bangkok for a commercial job, which I didn’t wanted to go because I haven’t watch enough films! 🙂

Here are some pics from the festival:

IMG_7164The Attic Room where I stayed. It is on the 14th Floor of the same building as the office of the festival. It is like an apartment run by an Arts Group called ACC. There are 3 rooms in the apartment and Jonathan arranged for me to stay in the Attic Room because of the great view. I have to watch my head every time I go down the stairs though, haha.
