【Hong Kong's musical “St. Joseph Freinademetz” Won Big at Catholic’s Oscar】
The film received Capax Dei Foundation Award for Evangelization
at the 10th Mirabile Dictu International Catholic Film Festival

Hong Kong’s musical film “St. Joseph Freinademetz: The First Saint to Ever Serve in Hong Kong” received the Capax Dei Foundation Award for Evangelization at Mirabile Dictu International Festival, the Catholic equivalent of the Academy Awards, in Rome, Italy on Thursday. This award is for the most significant Catholic subject among all the Films in this year’s final competition. Last year’s recipient of this award was documentary “Benedict XVI, in honor of the truth” by Rome Reports.
Fr. Jude Raymund Festin SVD and Fr. José Nicolás Espinosa SVD, representatives of SVD Curia in Rome, Ms. Lai-Nor Ngan, the musical’s director, and various crew members attended the event held in Rome Cavalieri, A Waldorf Astoria Resort. “Thanks God!” said Director Ngan after she received the “Silver Fish” award from the president of the film festival on the stage.
The film’s delegation was honored to meet Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, President of the Pontifical Council for Culture, British Movie Star Rupert Wynne-James, various film producers from all over the world, as well as major media outlets to introduce our film’s objectives. Interest in Chinese, evangelistic films has most certainly increased. The film successfully contributed to the history of Catholic films of China.
The festival received more than 1,500 movies this year, but there were only 12 titles vying for the “Silver Fish,” a sculpture that recalls the first Christian symbol. “St. Joseph Freinademetz” was also nominated for the Best Film, and the award was given to Austria’s “Otto Neururer, Hope Through Darkness.”
