The founder of CNEX, Ada Li, showed disappointment towards Hong Kong's lack of documentary film culture. She says the apathy leads to the limitation of the development of the industry. Documentary is considered as an important media to inform audience about what happens in the world which is regarded as a kind of history recording, Ms Li added and says that that documentaries about China are of particular interest in western countries in this day and age.

Lack of documentary filming culture

Ada shared her views on documentary filming in Hong Kong Shue Yan University yesterday.When talking about the documentary industry in Hong Kong, Ada Li, the foundation manager of CNEX, signed that among all the proposals received the amount of proposal from Hong Kong is very limited. She argued that this is due to the lack of documentary filming culture in Hong Kong. For instance, only people involved in the industry understand the process of pitching. Besides, organizations that provide support for the documentary filming are also limited. In Hong Kong, only RTHK provides funding for directors for production of documentary.

Lack demand for documentary

Moreover, television broadcast companies in Hong Kong would like to import soap dramas from Taiwan, Korea or Mainland China, which disencourages the development of documentary filming. On the other hand, about 60 to 70 percent of the television programmes of BBC are filmed by independent directors. However she still feel optimistic about the future development of the documentary industry in Hong Kong as more and more free channels will be formed which in turn provide platform for filmmakers to show their talent on the filming of documentaries.

CNEX would provide funding for about ten select documentary proposals. They try to collect proposals worldwide mainly from China, Taiwan and Hong Kong. Ada shared that the nature of stories from these three places are quite different. Documentary proposals from Hong Kong are mainly focusing on the human rights of individuals in the society.
