  • A Win for Daniel Hui’s Eclipses at Doclisboa

    Congratulations to Daniel Hui! His debut Eclipses has won the Pixel Bunker Award for International New Talent at the Doclisboa International Film Festival 2013, described by ArtForum as one of Europe’s most daring festivals. The prize is awarded to the Best First or Second feature-length film across all sections in the festival. It was awarded by a jury panel chaired by acclaimed filmmaker Alan Berliner, and consisting of university professor Margarida Medeiros, and film curator Stoffel Debuysere.

    Eclipses was presented in the New Vision section curated by noted film critic Augusto M. Seabra to highlight films with “innovation propositions that defy the usual categories”. Also programmed in the same section were Norte, the End of Historyby Lav Diaz, and Manuscripts Don’t Burn by Mohammad Rasoulof.

    A graduate of the film program in California Institute of the Arts, Daniel’s short films and writings about cinema have been
    frequently featured locally and abroad. Eclipses is his first feature-length film, done in collaboration with Lim Lung Chieh and Vel Ng. Later this month, Daniel will also lead the 3rd Edition of 13 Little Pictures Film Lab, a platform for fellow indie filmmakers to meet and collaborate with one another. The film lab will take place from 18 to 23 November 2013 at the World Film Festival Bangkok.

    About Doclisboa
    Doclisboa proposes a rethinking of the documentary across its respective implications and potentials: cinema thereby representing a practice enabling us to discover new ways and means of conceiving and acting the world. The intimate interrelationship between the artistic and the political is correspondingly assumed as a mode of freedom. We wish to display films eventually able to help understand the world we live in and revealing some of the possible sources of change.
