Call for entries | The 20th ifva Awards (Hong Kong)
Organised by Hong Kong Arts Centre, ifva is an Incubator for Film and Visual media in Asia (formerly the Hong Kong Independent Short Film and Video Awards). Founded in 1995, ifva serves as a platform that actively promotes and encourages creative talents in Asia, making short films, videos, animation and media art.
The ifva Awards is divided into several categories, including Open, Youth, Animation, Media Art and Asian New Force. As in previous years, ifva now accepts entries for short films and animation from Asian countries and expands this year to the media arts as well. The change comes about with the diversification for nationalities in the hope that more media artists will be able to join the ifva platform.
All finalist works will be showcased in “The 20th ifva Festival during March 2015. Roundtrip flight tickets will be partially subsidised and hotel accommodation will be provided to visit Hong Kong for “The 20th ifva Festival”. Attractive prizes will be offered to the award winners.
There are two categories which accept the entries from Asia* : New Media Arts and Asian New Force.
