王妍 Amy Wang, 深圳本地微电影FIRST FRIDAYS组织者 - Indie Short Film Present, First Fridays

First Fridays 是每个月的第一个星期五的活动,让当地的独立微电影人向其他电影爱好者呈现他们制作的微电影。
First Fridays is an event run on the first Friday of each month and it allows local filmmakers to showcase their indie movies to other film lovers.

DB: 您是什么时候开始举办First Fridays这个活动的?When did you start running First Fridays?
我于2015年5月首次举办FIRST FRIDAYS。
I started running First Fridays in May 2015.
DB: 什么启发你开始运行这个活动?What inspired you to start running the event?

嗯,我喜欢看电影,看电影的同时我总爱思考这部电影是如何制作出来的,电影里精彩的故事情节及想象力会让我深受启发。电影是帮助人们表达自己的想法和激发创造力的好工具,每个人都可以制作自己的电影。这也启发了我组织举办这个活动,为电影制作人提供
一个平台,播放他们的电影、交朋友及分享他们的想法。
Well, I like watching films and I always think about how the film is made. I am really inspired by the amazing stories and imagination that go into them. Film is a good tool to help people present their thoughts and to create – everyone can make their own film. This is what inspired me to run this event so that I could give a platform for those filmmakers to present their films, make friends and share their ideas.

DB: 这是否意味着任何人都可以参与您的活动并呈现他们的电影?Does this mean that anyone is able to get involved and showcase their films at your event?
是的,每个人都可以参与 – 专业人士和业余爱好者。
Yes, everyone can be involved – professionals and amateurs alike.
DB: First Fridays是什么时候?在哪里举办?Where and when does First Fridays take place?

正如活动名称所述,我们在每月的第一个星期五举办这个活动。过去很长一段时间里,我们在OCT-LOFT华侨城创意文化园举行该活动,但现在我们已经搬到了蛇口。
As the name states, we run this event on the first Friday of each month. For a long time we held the event at OCT Loft but now we have moved to Shekou.

DB: 典型的First Fridays活动一般有什么内容?What does a typical First Fridays event usually involve?

通常从晚上8点至10点,我们展映由独立电影制作人提供的不同类型的电影,然后现场观众投票选出自己最喜欢的影片,获奖者将获得由RODE赞助的奖品。随后的夜晚,大家可以互相交流,有时候从晚上10点到凌晨,我们还会有一个音乐派对。
Usually from 8pm to 10pm we show any kind of indie film people want to present and then the audience votes for their favourite. The winner will be awarded a prize which is a sponsorship by RODE. Later on in the night people can socialise, make connections and sometimes from 10pm we will have a music event until midnight.

DB: 过去几年里您一定看过很多电影!有没有什么电影,你特别难忘?So you must have seen a lot of films over the past couple of years! Are there any films that you have been especially memorable?
所有的电影制作人都很出色,对他们做的事情抱有很大的热情,这也激励着我继续经营这个活动。每次的活动都会带来新的惊喜,但对我而言印象最深的是一部名为“小丑”的影片,故事关于一个小丑,当他与人握手时,就拥有了受害者。
All the filmmakers are very good and have a big passion for what they do and this inspires me to keep running the event. Every event brings a new surprise but one that really stood out for me was “Clown.” It is about a clown who possesses his victims when he shakes their hand.

DB: 您对未来的First Fridays活动有什么计划?What are your plans for the future of First Fridays?
我的计划是举办一场展映会,呈现过去每场活动投票产生的最佳影片。
My plan is to hold an exhibition for all the best films voted from each event.
