Cantonese Opera Education Enrichment Project 2022-2023

In September 2022, the Cantonese Opera Education Enrichment Project invited Yemina Chung to introduce and demonstrate make-up, costume and props in Cantonese Opera. A series of workshops were held in October for participants to learn basic Cantonese Opera singing and acting.



Animators’ Roundtable Forum:
Hong Kong Animation

This roundtable forum will discuss animated filmmaking in Hong Kong, past, present, and future, from the insider perspectives of these animators who have left their footprints in history of Hong Kong animation. They will discuss a diverse range of topics, including the history and heritage of Hong Kong animation, independent animation, commercial animation, experimental and abstract animation, and animation education. They will also share hidden histories and names never disclosed to the public, rarely seen animated films and photos, as well as their dreams, struggles, joys, regrets, and pains along the journey.
