Three UM student films to screen at Macao Panorama of Films
This year the Audio-Visual Cut Association will again host it’s “Macao Films and Videos Panorama.” The 2022 edition has been slightly delayed due to the pandemic and will now screen March 17-26, 2023 at the Casa Garden. Audio-Visual Cut Association has been at the center of filmmaking in the local community for over a decade through its programming and support for local filmmakers.
Quoting the festival organisers’ “This year’s “Macao Films and Videos Panorama” screened a total of 26 local works, of which 10 came from the Macao Cultural Centre’s “Local View Power” film shooting subsidy program, another 12 were selected from the open call locally, and 4 more It is recommended by four tertiary institutions in Macau (University of Macao, Macao Polytechnic University, Macao University of Science and Technology, University of Saint Joseph Macao).”
The Dept. of Communication is pleased to have selected “One Day That Day” by Angie, Wong Cheng I to represent the University of Macau in the local university screening section. Wong’s film is a thoughtful portrait of an elderly food stall vendor and his regrets about not expressing his true feelings as a young man.
The Dept. of Communication is also well represented by two films in the open competition section. “Sea” by Johnson, Chan Chon Sin is a striking depiction of two men and their lives on the edge of the sea. “Tantalus” by Viktor, Wang Ruo Fan adapts the Greek mythological figure of Tantalus to the confines of a locked room. All three are dramatic shorts that highlight the creativity and filmmaking abilities of our Creative Media students.
