What is GUFA?
Our Academy launched the first GUFA in November 2018 and has received 1,841 short films from 99 countries and regions globally. Being envisioned as the “University Oscars”, GUFA is well-recognized as the most-celebrated international student event ever undertaken in Hong Kong. Over the 3-days event from November 7 – 9, 2018, more than 400 participants from across the world comprising students, academic scholars and film industry professionals joined a myriad of activities.
The activities included screenings of 140 shortlisted creative student film productions which has entered into the final of the 5 film categories, 4 master classes given by industry heavyweights and a pitching session in rewarding students with outstanding story ideas. Among all, the Opening Ceremony as well as the Award Presentation Ceremony were the highlights and overwhelmed by over 1,000 guests altogether.
GUFA connected local and international, bringing together not only members of the Hong Kong community, but also film talents and practitioners from all over the world.
