Brief description
of the Project:
The CSI has provided funding support to organize a documentary filmmaking competition and its related activities. The project aims to further develop the documentary filmmaking skill base in Hong Kong by grooming budding talent and producing local documentaries with international appeal. Two winning projects would be filmed under the supervision of National Geographic Channel Asia (NGCA), the collaborating party of this project. The two one-hour documentary programmes would then be scheduled for broadcast by RTHK in Hong Kong and NGCA international satellite cable television channels.

Additionally, two public workshops would also be jointly organized by RTHK and NGCA -
1. Before the competition: to present key objectives of the initiative and guidelines on writing a successful proposal and producing a strong documentary film; and

2. After the completion of the winning productions: to feature the two winners for experience sharing on how to produce successful documentaries.
