Chi Fu Valley Heritage Hiking + Filming

August 25, 2015 - August 30, 2015


If you’re interested in film production, history or natural heritage, look no further.

Chi Fu Valley, a green area of interesting stories, unique architectures, natural heritage and new challenges, awaits your exploration and documentary.

In this orientation program, we will hike through the valley and listen to local residents telling stories about our neighborhood and challenges it’s facing. We will use our smartphones/cameras to capture the moments of our exploration of the beautiful valley and get to know its history and natural heritage. We will also interview experts in architectural conservation to understand what’s happening to our changing community.

In the end, we are going to make short films to show what we’ve found and compete for a prize!
