Coming to filmmaking relatively late after two decades in the business world, Hong Kong-based filmmaker Scud has quickly established himself as a fearless presence in world cinema with taboo-defying films such as Permanent Residence (2009), Amphetamine (2010), and Love Actually... Sucks! (2011). His sensual, surreal films mix sadness and sexuality, unabashedly exploring gay erotics.
The award will be presented at the Q Hugo Film Awards.
Scud is the first recipient of the Q Hugo and will be presenting his newest film, Voyage, at the Festival on 10/20 and 10/22.
