在地而立 On Earth We Stand

《在地而立》簡介

香港獨立電影節踏入第十年,《在地而立》梳理這十年間的經歷,思考獨立電影在香港這環境下如何發展。重述歷史非常重要,透過回望,可以望見未來,也可以明瞭當下的構成。

從回顧歷史,延伸至獨立電影的概念討論、獨立電影(節)與社會變遷的互動、再到放映、場地和展示的問題, 希望從而展視出這電影節對於它所生成的地方的意義和影響。獨立電影自有一套與商業電影不同的展示和接收的方式,因而與社會的互動亦很不一樣。如果商業電影是跟從某種資本主義的規劃來告訴我們該看甚麼、聽甚麼,那麼,獨立電影/獨立電影節的政治基進性則在於,它們尋找與資本主義不一樣的規劃,解除商業的邏輯,告訴我們有甚麼其他的影像是值得看、聽和思考。如此看來,看似是很簡單的社區放映的概念,其實已經可以是一場社會運動。

藝術總監崔允信的話

影意志二十年,而香港獨立電影節在過去十年亦已不定期地舉行了十多次。以自己的性格來說,我是很怕做甚麼週年紀念,好像有點自吹自擂。但記得會議那天,馮美華女士剛好有出席, 她以一貫說話的節奏鼓勵我們籌劃一本特刊。要出版一本刊物, 把重要的事情紀錄下來, 不只是為自己爭取更多, 而是讓後來的人知道我們做了甚麼,做不到甚麼。我只希望能分享一些經驗, 查找不足,然後與年輕人一起開拓新天地。

Introduction of On Earth We Stand

This year marks the 10th anniversary of the HKIndieFF. ‘On Earth We Stand’ sums up what have happened in the past ten years and projects how independent films in Hong Kong will move ahead. Recording history is important, through which we can review the past, understand the present and project the future.

From history to conception; from how independent films interact with the social evolution to how to decide screening, presentation and venue, this book depicts the meaning and influence of HKIndieFF to the land where it grows. The format of display and reception of independent films is different from that of commercial films, so is their interaction with the society. If commercial films follow some kind of capitalist scheme to distribute our sensibility, the politically radical nature of

independent films or independent film festivals is to search for a different way, breaking away from commercial logics and forming a new sequence distribution. The concept of communal screening, seemingly simple, is actually a social movement.

Artisitc Director Vincent Chui's Preface

Ying E Chi was set up 20 years ago. For the past ten years, Hong Kong Independent Film Festival (HKIndieFF) has been held irregularly for more than 10 times. Personally I would avoid anniversaries because they sound self-boasting. Once in a meeting Ms May Fung Mei-wah in her usual tone encouraged us to produce a special publication for recording important things. It was not for fighting for more but to let the younger generations know what we had done and what we had failed to do. All I can do is to share some experience, find out the deficiencies, and join hand with the young people to create a new world.
