We have always been surrounded by the best form of art there is: Films. A place that recognizes the importance and value of such an art, the International Film Festival in Macao is filled with wonder.
The International Film Festival in Macao is an event jointly organized by the Macao Government Tourism Office and the Macao Films & Television Productions and Culture Association. The event is often referred to as ‘IFFAM’ or the ‘Film Festival’.
The aim of such a celebration is to raise awareness and develop an audience for cinema and promoting films as art and entertainment.
It also wants to forge identity for an international competition for first and second-time film makers. The show looks forward to artistic and business collaborations with the Asian and Western film-makers.
For 2019, this major gathering for international filmmakers is set to enhance cultural exchange and promoting Asian film talent to the global stage.
The primary idea of such an exchange is to showcase some of the best films from the year and a few films from a region that is new for the press or the industry. The event wants Macao to be known for its cinematic history.
Did you know that India’s very own director, producer, screenwriter, costume designer, actor and television personality Karan Johar (KJo) is the Festival Ambassador? Yes! He will be traveling to Macao soon enough!
The other talent ambassadors are Carina Lau, a celebrated actress from Hong Kong and Junmeyon Kim (Suho), a member of the EXO!
This Film Festival will also feature a new competition called ‘Shorts’ where five new accolades: Best Film, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Actor and Best Actress shall be awarded!
Celebrate the extraordinary contributions of filmmakers to the Asian Film World with the IFFAM. There will also be special tributes to classic film works. It will provide with a variety of films that will suit all tastes!
