Selection from the Kam Fan Awards Hong Kong and the Korean TVCF Advertising Awards 2018
Duration: 88 minutes
Screening times: 23/9 (Mon) 19:30 | 26/9 (Thu) 21:30 | 28/9 (Sat) 14:30
The advertisements of the Kam Fan Awards Hong Kong always resonate with genuine local sentiments. With global warming, our recent summers have been super hot, so we particularly need our family, lovers, friends, electrolyte and water. Think of a massage when you’re sprinting. Embrace your fortune even when you have a cold. Hong Kong’s diverse culture cares about its own happenings, but it also looks out to the world. South Korean commercials are star-studded. BTS leads a tour around Seoul. Gong Yoo buys furniture with you. Kakao Friends have already got under our skin, and we don’t wish to know how to quit them. If we want to raise a dog, we need to learn how to clean up their shit. We don’t need an Extreme Job to know how delicious Korean fried chickens could be!
Selection from The Clio Awards 2018
Duration: 90 minutes
Screening times: 24/9 (Tue) 19:30 | 25/9 (Wed) 21:45 | 27/9 (Fri) 19:30 | 29/9 (Sun) 14:30
Every year, the Clio Awards gathers advertising geniuses from around the world. Their winners show how reverse thinking opens up new paths to groundbreaking concepts. These creative ideas make old and new brands last like forever. The Clio Awards witnesses how creativity can persevere until it moves souls. What was the main theme of popular commercials in 2018? Some of the year’s biggest ads say it best: A humanoid said the internet was filled with messages of “HATE”, but many humans have created commercials of hope. They say: “Even when the colours of our skin and our genders look different from the outside, we won’t be defeated as long as we unite in solidarity.” “Taxpayers need to fight corruption.” “Let’s stay calm even when the Winter Olympics are exhilarating.” “Love, Harry. Love” Maybe this year’s theme is that commercials are still full of beauty?
Selection from ADFEST 2019
Duration: 105 minutes
Screening time：23/9 (Mon) 21:30 | 25/9 (Wed) 19:30 | 29/9 (Sun) 19:30 | 1/10 (Tue) 19:30
The theme of ADFEST this year is “TMRRW.TDAY”. Discover the latest trends and technologies, and shape tomorrow’s world today. ADFEST’s selection shows the most current phenomena in Asia. We always have problems, but we also have solutions. It’s hard for Japanese men when they need to be kawaii. A Thai friend gives you tips on how to make new friends. In the midst of the #MeToo movement, a film awards show tells that victims of sexual abuse are often the Best Actors in reality. Cosmetic, skincare and haircare products of Asian brands turn humans to gods. This year’s ADFEST continues to remind us of happiness with its Asian brand of humour.
Selection from Festival Iberoamericano de Publicidad (FIAP) 2018 and The AICP Show 2019
Duration: 83 minutes
Screening times: 24/9 (Tue) 21:30 | 26/9 (Thu) 19:30 | 27/9 (Fri) 21:30 | 29/9 (Sun) 16:30
The Festival Iberoamericano de Publicidad (FIAP) celebrates outstanding advertising works from Spanish and Portuguese influenced regions. We’re always lucky enough to have friends that love to give us spoilers, a Peruvian telecom company teaches us how to deal with this sort of great friends. While a Brazilian soda ad hits your taste buds, it also speaks up for the rights of the gay community. The AICP Show, The Art & Technique of the American Commercial, is more than just an awards show judging the best work of the year. It’s an ongoing archival project with cultural and artistic significance. Since the Show’s inception in 1992, the honoured work is preserved in The Museum of Modern Art’s Department of Film’s state of the art archives for future generations to study, and are available for use or exhibition by the museum’s curators. These years, journalists have been facing all kinds of threats and persecutions around the world, a newspaper in New York refuses to submit to this kind of terror – “The Truth Is Worth it”. When Ridley Scott tastes a brandy with you, each drop is an odyssey.
Talk: “I don’t even look at ads but I work in advertising so can advertisers still work in advertising?” – A Potluck Chat Without Potluck but a Great Chat
Date and time: 28/9 (Sat) 16:30
Adrian Li, Head of Account Management, Sunny Idea
Leung Chung, Head of Creative, Sunny Idea
Vincent Tse, Head of Creative, Sunny Idea
Conducted in Cantonese.
Three fabulous and creative advertising talents from Sunny Idea will chat about some really drastic trend in advertising: We’re not watching TV, not buying newspapers, not flipping magazines, not glancing at ads, or maybe we can’t even see the ads! So, can advertising even survive longer? Should ad pros jump ship? Or should they just stay on the ship to reach the shore?
