HKUST Division of Humanities Associate Professor Daisy Du launched the “Chinese Independent films” programme to introduce different genres of films and basic skills of film-making.
Students taking the programme do not need to take an exam or submit a paper, but have to make a 10-minute film before completing the programme. One former student said the programme has inspired him so much that now he is pursuing a career in producing TV programme.
Professor Du said HKUST believes humanities subjects is as important as science and engineering subjects, and hoped students can help the underprivileged through the curriculum.
