Now in its seventh year, the GFA Film Festival, founded by Michael Tse, recognizes and honors those who use their creative talents to celebrate the range and diversity of filmmakers in an interconnected world by encouraging filmmakers to ‘Twist the System’. By rewarding unique and unorthodox approaches to filmmaking, GFA emphasizes emerging technologies such as mobile devices and digital media in film production and distribution.
