The HKIFF is not the only international film festival being held in Hong Kong this spring. The kids at Hong Kong International School are going global too. During the past three years, the school's film club has shown works made by fellow students as well as other homegrown shorts, but this year they have decided to open their fest to all ages and all countries. 'We're trying to turn the festival from an HKIS-dominated event into something with a much broader spectrum,' said co-president Indrayudh Shome, 17, who leads the group with four other seniors and staff member Richard Friedericks. To entice more entries, a submission fee is waived this year. So far, they have received projects from Denmark to the US, but they would like to see more young people take part. 'This is a festival run by students, so it would be nice to see outstanding student films find their way to the festival.' The Tai Tam Independent Film Festival starts on April 28 at the HKIS campus. The deadline for submissions is March 30. Full details can be found at www.hkisfilm.tk .
