M21 New Media Festival 2019

The festival has an exciting 2-day programme from 5-6 July with a broad mix of activities. They include a video contest, talks, exhibitions and film screenings, as well as an integrated creative space at HKFYG's Jockey Club Media 21 (M21) in Aberdeen. M21 will be open to the public during this major partnership event which has four main objectives.

These are to introduce up-and-coming new media technologies, platforms and trends and provide an opportunity for youth to learn about new media training and career paths. It is also hoped that young people will gain raised awareness of the new media and the knowledge and skills they need to contribute to this sector. The M21 New Media Festival Values+ Online Video Awards contest prizes will be awarded during the event.
