Ocean Art Walk 2015 at Stanley Plaza

“The changes are happening; they're very visible, they're photographable, they're measurable...”  James Balog, "Chasing Ice" filmmaker For the past two years, Emmy-award winning documentary "Chasing Ice" has been screened in 172 countries and on all seven continents, stunning audiences with beautifully-crafted images of some of the world’s biggest glaciers. These powerful pictures are also shocking – revealing irrefutable evidence of human-caused climate change and its impact on life on land and in the ocean.  This March and April at Ocean Art Walk 2015 at Stanley Plaza, artists and young people take "Chasing Ice" as their inspiration to encourage everyone to cherish our waters. Join us for a close-up look at the land and water we all depend on for survival, and discover how climate change is impacting life on Earth and what could happen if we don’t act now.

JUMP CUT Independent Film Festival 2015

After months of preparation by YAF's enthusiastic JUMP CUT youth committee, Hong Kong’s city-wide pop-up independent film festival is back again this Easter… Are you ready? JUMP CUT 2015 features a top selection of great local and international independent films with screenings held in unconventional venues around Hong Kong - including a rooftop, an art gallery and a restaurant owned by a local indie band! With ‘Individuality’ as this year’s JUMP CUT theme, the festival kicks off with feature film “The Way He Looks”, and closes with “Intouchables”. A series of local short films selected from our Youth Edition Open Call and the Fresh Wave will also be screened. At each screening, our youth committee will share their thoughts on the chosen films, and help provide a glimpse of the visions and dreams of today's young people. In addition, the festival offers workshops and talks hosted by talented film directors and industry professionals. And if that's not tempting enough – all screenings are free! So, register now to secure your seat!
