Graduating students of the Department of Communication of the Faculty of Social Sciences at the University of Macau (UM) organised CommFest 2024, which attracted the participation of students, faculty, and people from different sectors of the community. With the theme ‘Youthful Heart, Freedom Start’, this year’s CommFest aimed to provide participants with an unforgettable experience of personal growth and self-discovery.

Speaking at the opening ceremony, Lei Choi San, representative of the organising committee of CommFest 2024 and a student of the Department of Communication, said that CommFest, which reached its 23rd edition this year, has been an annual event for the graduating students of the Department of Communication at UM since 2000. It allows the students to apply and demonstrate their theoretical knowledge and professional skills in the field of communication and event organisation.

The week-long event is packed with activities, including talks, workshops, a fair, an interactive exhibition, a film screening, and an electronic music festival. The students also presented their final year projects during the event, including a book titled City Walk in Macau (Communicator 2024) and a magazine titled LIF(V)E! (UM Bridges).
