WHAT'S HAPPENING

10th Hong Kong International Deaf Film Festival and the 2nd International Conference

Over the past ten years, we have continuously assembled Deaf Films all over the world. We attempt to present sign language and Deaf culture through films that tell stories of the Deaf and created by Deaf people. We do not see Deaf as disabled, but affirm that Deaf people is a community with their own language, culture and history.

A decade has passed. It is time for us to review and further explore the meanings and issues of Deaf films. The 2nd International Conference on Deaf Cinema will be held concurrently with the Film Festival. Local and overseas Deaf Film Festival organizers, film workers, Deaf groups and activists will be invited to discuss and share together. 

10th Hong Kong International Deaf Film Festival and the 2nd International Conference on Deaf Cinema will be held online. Opening Ceremony & Programme 1: Hong Kong Deaf Film and all conference sessions are free of charge. For programme 2 -7, tickets are available at PUTYOURSELF.in.

LOVE RUN 3.0
Director: Daniel Ha
Malaysia | 2019 | 6’ | In Chinese with Malaysian Sign Language, with Chinese and English subtitles | Colour | HD

[No one can choose their own birth, but we can choose how to treat others]

I believe that to change society, we need to change culture. What is the definition of normal in society? That is if you are the only non-smoker when ten people are smoking, you will be identified as ‘abnormal’. What kind of culture do you want to have in society? You can choose and change. We try to understand the situation of Deaf people from all aspects. We hope that society can be full of love, and run for love all our lives. Love can change the world.

[We realize that the most terrible thing is not physical defect, but the mental defect] – Daniel

Please Give Me a Piece of Blue Sky
Director: Zheng Xiaosan
China | 2020 | 15’ | In Chinese with Chinese Sign Language, with Chinese and English subtitles | Colour | HD

This film is adapted from the real experience of Zhang Minghui, a deaf female barista. She was deaf since she was a child, and she was repeatedly rejected when she looked for jobs. One day, she accidentally spilled coffee on the proprietress of a coffee shop while delivering food. Instead of blaming her, the proprietress admired her quiet and focused temperament, so she asked her to help in her shop. The scent of coffee in the coffee shop reminded her of the fragrance of the traditional Chinese medicine her mother brewed for her when she was small, which inspired her to learn how to brew coffee. Minghui wishes to help more deaf people to pursue their dreams.
