Mr Nick Cheuk Yick-him, an esteemed alumnus of the School of Creative Media has been honoured with the Best New Director award at the 17th Asian Film Awards with his film Time Still Turns The Pages.

This is yet another honour after he clinched the Best New Director Award and the Audience Choice Award at the 60th Golden Horse Awards for this feature film in 2023.

Mr Cheuk expressed his surprise and gratitude for receiving the award, thanking his dedicated cast and crew for their contributions to the film.

President Freddy Boey is extremely proud of Mr Cheuk’s achievement as it demonstrates the significance of innovative education in empowering students to explore, unlock, and maximise their true potential.

The family drama revolves around a teacher who stumbles upon an anonymous suicide note in his classroom. To prevent a potential tragedy, he embarks on a quest to identify the student, a journey that stirs up his own childhood memories.

Mr Cheuk, who said he is steadfast in his pursuit of a filmmaking career, will compete for the titles of Best Director and Best New Director at the upcoming Hong Kong Film Awards in April.

Mr Cheuk graduated in 2012 with a Bachelor of Arts in Creative Media, majoring in Cinematic Arts.
