As China develops at a rapid pace, more social problems have arisen and the desire for documentary films from China has been unprecedented in recent years, said Ada Li, manager of CNEX foundation Ltd.(CNEX), in a university assembly.


Li noted that more Chinese are eager to know what happening in their countries, while there is a high restriction of speech in China - Chinese are unable to learn the status of their countries through media. That is why CNEX founded, assisting more documentary introduced. China Gate(2012) is one of the documentary films sponsored by CNEX, outlining the social problem of China.


Li pointed out that CNEX provides funding for directors with good documentary ideas. CNEX hold the CNEX Chinese Doc Forum(CCDF) regularly, choosing around 20 proposals out of 100. Directors introduce their ideas to ask for sponsors in the forum. Judges raise questions about the details of the proposal, which is also a process that help the productions be more concise.


Li explained that CNEX is a non-profit making institution, and their operation rely on donation. The documentary films sponsored by CNEX are mainly screened in cultural centers and campuses. They screened their films in more than 20 universities and culture centers in 2011.


Li raised a problem of Hong Kong documentary film industry - there are not enough platforms for film directors to propose their idea in Hong Kong, and this must be changed to encourage people creating more meaningful story in the coming future.


“Nowadays, we can only found two types of documentary films. One is in-house documentary films, produced by the broadcasters herself. The other is acquisitive-documentary films, which are purchased from the other countries’ production house. That will be a pity if directors cannot introduce their excellent idea to the world.”


Li added that now only Radio Television Hong Kong provides platforms for directors proposing their ideas and appropriating funds for the productions, which is surely not enough.
