Choi Sin Yi Emilie | 蔡倩怡

 researcher, curator, critic & writer

CHOI Sin-yi (Emilie) is a Hong Kong-based researcher, curator and critic concentrating on film art, moving images and time-based media in general. She graduated in 2014 from Lingnan University (major: Cultural Studies; minor: Cinema Studies) and worked as a cultural journalist for several years. She is the founder of Cinezen and Hong Kong Actual Image Association. In 2017, she curated the Hong Kong Retrospective Documentary Film Festival: from 80s to 1997 and The Hong Kong Docuthon with a cross-disciplinary approach. Her writings are widely published in Cinezen, City Magazine, Ming Pao, Ming Pao Weekly. She is now doing her MPhil research degree at the Academy of Visual Arts, the Hong Kong Baptist University.

Emilie’s research interests include the practice of moving images (in particular Asian documentary, experimental and alternative cinema and video art), art and politics, film festivals, and institutional critique on cultural sector and art spaces. Her current MPhil research is on the experimental practices of Hong Kong moving images. She aims, on the one hand, to examine alternative histories and the formation of the self through visual forms and narratives and, on the other, articulate these practices within the discourse of Hong Kong’s (post-)colonial history and identity politics. She believes that writing and curating is a process of knowledge-mapping and the creation of publics.
