The Macao Cultural Centre, under the auspices of the Cultural Affairs Bureau, selected 15 brand new local productions commissioned by the newest edition of “Local View Power”. After assessing a staggering 66 proposals, the members of the jury invited by CCM came up with a final selection comprising seven documentaries, four short fictions and four short animations. Focusing on a wide range of themes, this year’s new projects will be granted nearly MOP 1,000,000 attributed by a panel composed by three audiovisual experts. Besides a CCM representative, this edition’s jury includes Ding Yuin Shan, an experienced film producer and member of the Academy for Performing Arts, and renowned critic Ka Ming Fung, both from Hong Kong.
Over the past decade, CCM has commissioned a total of 104 works directed by local film talents, encouraging a growing number of audiovisual artists and promoting the production of films about Macao. For further information on “Local View Power”, please visit www.ccm.gov.mo.
