When C goes with G7: HKFYG's first movie
There is really nothing more satisfying that seeing the end result of a creative process. The Federation is passionate about encouraging and motivating young people to be imaginative, inspired and innovative through different media. That is why the first ever Federation movie, When C goes with G7, made by young people for young people, is so exciting, especially as it has been chosen as one of the movies to be screened at the 2013 Hong Kong Asia Film Festival.

When C goes with G7 was sponsored by the Dragon Foundation. Made by young people, the film will no doubt inspire others to take up the creative baton and follow in their footsteps at the HKFYG Jockey Club Media 21 (M21), which encourages innovation and imagination.

When C goes with G7 was directed by Lawrence Kan who won short video Hang Seng Bank - Chinese Youth Film Contest organized by HKFYG in 2011. Hong Kong Asia Film Festival Screenings are at The ONE - Broadway Circuit, at 7.30pm and 9.45pm, on Sunday 27 October, and at Broadway Cinemathèque at 7.40pm on Wednesday 30 October. There will be a charity screening on the evening of Monday 9 December at AMC Pacific Place. Public screenings at The ONE - Broadway Circuit begin on 10 December.
