What schools say about our program

"The workshops presented by the Hong Kong International Film Academy gave our junior students a great insight into the visual storytelling process. The hands-on workshops guided the studnts in the planning, shooting and editing of their original films. Richard Wong and his assistants demonstrated a professional and genuine interest in our students and their acquisition of filmmaking skills. The workshops also provided an authentic English environment that enhanced our students' confidence in their language ability. Overall the workshops acted as a useful springboard upon which to launch future filmmaking courses within our school" - Deborah Warton (Aberdeen Baptist Lui Ming Choi College)
