A Short Film for Acer Honored with Red Dot Award

2017.08.14

Acer today announced that two of its short films have won the prestigious Red Dot Award: Communication Design 2017. The awarded films include one titled Making Dreams Possible, directed by Maxine Lu and Guo Shang-Sing of Beach House Pictures.

This short film is based on the true stories of three young individuals from China, Philippines and South Africa. While they hail from different backgrounds, they share common aspirations for improving themselves and their communities. With the help from Acer, their dreams are one step closer to becoming reality.

This year, Red Dot received over 8,000 submissions from 50 countries and all projects were assessed individually by an independent and international expert jury in a process spanning several days. The Red Dot Award: Communication Design thus stands more than ever for one of the most renowned evaluation platforms for good design and creativity.
