A series of creative works by students of The Open University of Hong Kong (OUHK) are to be showcased at the “MOVIE11 X OUHK Screening of Student Films & Animations” on three Saturdays in the first quarter of 2019. It is a collaborated project between the OUHK and K11 Art Mall.

All the works shown at the three screenings are created by students of the OUHK Bachelor’s degree programmes in Animation and Visual Effects, Cinematic Design and Photographic Digital Art, Creative Advertising and Media Design, and Creative Writing and Film Arts. Genres include animations, micro movies, documentaries, experimental films, etc.

A launch ceremony was held last Saturday (19 January) at the K11 and it was officiated by OUHK Vice President (Academic) Prof. Reggie Kwan Ching-ping, Vice President (Administration & Development) Prof. Tong Chong Sze, Dean of the School of Arts and Social Sciences Prof. Charles Kwong Che Leung, Head of Creative Arts cum Associate Professor of the School of Arts and Social Sciences Dr Rebecca Leung Mo-ling, and K11 Concepts Limited Art Projects Team Manager Mr Cyrus Chan.

Speaking at the ceremony, Prof. Reggie Kwan thanked the K11 Art Mall for offering a valuable opportunity and platform for the OUHK students to display their creative works and demonstrate their talents to the general public. He said that the University has been committed to nurturing students to become future leaders of Hong Kong’s cultural and creative industries. Though the creative arts programmes in the OUHK have been launched for just a few years, he said the students have obtained remarkable achievements from various competitions and activities. Prof. Kwan hoped that through the screenings, OU students’ works can reach and inspire a much wider audience.

Prof. Kwan added that this year’s OUHK Graduation Show of Creative Arts will be held from 21 June to 1 July at which about 100 pieces of creative works will be exhibited. He sincerely invited the public to visit the exhibition and get a glimpse into the creative minds of OU students.
