Centre for Cinema Studies, Lingnan University and Chinese Independent Filmmaking Alliance (cifa) jointly organised an independent film show on 12 December. Three films – 21 years after, Condolences and Uncle Kai – were screened. 

21 years after, directed by Lo Chun-yip, a graduate of the School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong, is based on the “Five Districts Referendum Movement” held on 16 May 2011 in Hong Kong, as well as the hopes and loneliness of a young citizen. Condolences, directed by Ying Liang, has won one of the three “Tiger Awards for Short Film” at the 39th International Film Festival Rotterdam. It reconstructs a car accident in 2004 in Zigong City, Sichuan, China. In Uncle Kai, renowned local independent filmmaker Mr Vincent Chui Wan-shun presents the daily life of a vegetable vendor in Yaumatei. 

During the post-screening discussion, Mr Chui shared with students the underlying meaning of each film and the importance of the spirit of independence in local productions.
