Riley Wong from Birkbeck, University of London has been accepted to join at UK-China Film Collab as Specialised Programme Curator. Riley will undertake a 8-week internship as part of her credited placement module. Here is Rilye’s introduction to herself:
“I am currently studying MA in Film and Screen Media (with the pathway to Film Programming and Curating) at the Birkbeck, University of London.
I was born and raised in Hong Kong. I graduated from the City University of Hong Kong with a Bachelor of Sociology and Criminology. Watching films is always my biggest interest and I have always wanted to work in this industry. Therefore, I have started this MA degree and I wish to explore more about film history and gain more related experiences and connections. So far, I have gotten many opportunities from my course, including student accreditation at Berlinale Film Festival, programme viewers at Raindance Film Festival, and now an internship at UCFC.
I wish to bring more multiple Hong Kong cinemas to the UK audience via this internship. I am currently developing a project at UCFC which focuses on various Hong Kong film directors, giving a better understanding and conversation of Hong Kong cinema in the UK.”
