Mobile Film Festival Awards announced









HONG KONG: Mobiles make their mark at the Hong Kong Filmart 2008.


Joseph Lam‘s Infection walks away with five awards at the 1st Hong Kong Mobile Film Festival Awards.


To ensure even better quality of ideas and videos, the awards for the first ever mobile TV Awards were introduced in various categories. Thirteen finalists were selected from all the entries who finally went up for the top honours.



Out of the thirteen finalists, Lam‘s video Infection, which emphasised self-improvement instead of complaining and criticising everything about Hong Kong, bagged five of the honours including best drama award, best animation award, best my Hong Kong award, Nokia‘s most innovative film award (which also won him a handset for HKS 5,000), as well the the grand award category involving a cash prize of HKS 20,000.








Kowloon City‘s Holy Family Canosian School bagged an equal number of awards for their entry Graduation, which was about two graduate students‘ emotional moments before they graduate by snapping photographs, in the following categories: best drama/MTV award, best acting award, best editing award, Nokia‘s most popular film award as well as 3 Hong Kong best school campus awards, a category which had invited entries only from students studying in Hong Kong primary and secondary schools.



The other winners were Mona Tang‘s No Discount, which was about contribution to the needy without any discount for best advertisement while best story was bagged by Lai Tsz Chun‘s entry Watch, a story of a girl and a boy on a date after school.
