"Virtual Reality" Documentary Series
《虛擬與現實》紀錄片系列

The“Virtual Reality”Documentary Series, organised by the Core Curriculum and General Education Office (CCGEO), Centre for Cinema Studies and CNEX Foundation on 9 and 16 April 2015 on campus, attracted students from Lingnan as well as local secondary schools.

Upon the first screening of the film “State of Play”, Mr. Cheng Lap, Founder of Kowloonia, shared his views on the video game cultures in Hong Kong, while Prof. Lisa Leung of Cultural Studies talked about the background of the video game industry in Korea. With the screening of the closing film “Digital Nation”, the “Virtual Reality” Series marked a well-received attempt, as a General Education event outside of the curriculum, to inspire students to think critically about global complex issues of technology with this generation.

由核心課程及通識教通辦事處、電影研究中心及CNEX基金會合辦《虛擬與現實》紀錄片系列於4月9及16日在嶺南校園完滿舉行,吸引嶺南師生及本地中學生參與。

首場播放電影《電競高手》,映後由戰略遊戲《民國無雙》創辦人鄭立先生分享他對本地網絡遊戲發展的看法,亦有文化研究系梁旭明教授講述韓國電玩文化產業的背景及發展﹔尾場則放映另一套與科技相關的電影《數碼國度》。整個《虛擬與現實》紀錄片系列為學生提供課程以外的通識教育活動,讓同學進深思考當下複雜的環球科技議題。
