Mr Nick Cheuk, 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 on 10 March. 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.

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

Nick, 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. He graduated in 2012 with a Bachelor of Arts in Creative Media, majoring in Cinematic Arts.

On 17 March, alumna Ms Grace Lau took the title in Female Kata in the Karate 1 (K1) Premier League in Antalya, Turkey, after edging out her Japanese opponent.

This Gold medal performance by Grace follows her winning the Women’s Kata event in the Asia Karate Federation Senior Championships 2023.

Grace secured the world’s number one ranking in female kata for the first time in early 2024. She has excelled in the K1 Premier League, winning gold in Morocco in 2018 and again this year in Turkey.
