The Academy of Film (AF) at Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) will present the Global University Film Awards (GUFA) 2020 on 4 to 6 November (Wednesday to Friday). 

 

Envisaged as the "University Oscars", GUFA is well-recognised as the most celebrated international film event in the academic arena ever undertaken in Hong Kong. It recognises the excellence of film productions by university students from across the world by connecting the global film community and its audiences with the outstanding works and groundbreaking ideas presented by the participants. The event not only showcases the students’ talents but also fosters the exchange of ideas and enhances professional networks.

 

Organised for the second time, this year's GUFA received a total of 2,503 submissions from 104 countries and regions, including France, Germany, Hong Kong, Iran, Lebanon, Puerto Rico, South Korea, United States, Venezuela, Yemen, and many more.
