自2008年開始舉辦「香港獨立電影節」（2008 －2009 兩屆為「香港亞洲獨立電影節」)。致力推廣各地的獨立電影、開拓更多的放映渠道，讓香港觀眾欣賞到更多優秀的獨立電影作品，豐富本地的觀映選擇。
Founded in 1997, Ying E Chi is a non-profit arts organisation that was established by a group of Hong Kong independent filmmakers. Our mission is to unite local independent filmmakers, as well as to distribute and promote independent films. Ying E Chi has been organising Hong Kong Independent Film Festival annually since 2008 (2008-2009 as Hong Kong Asian Independent Film Festival). Ying E Chi’s members believe that independent films, by emphasising the creativity of filmmakers rather than commercial elements, is conductive to produce creative, innovative cinema of a high artistic value that audiences can appreciate.
Ying E Chi has been running screenings, seminars and workshops in various cinemas, universities and local arts and cultural venues. Films distributed by Ying E Chi had also participated in diverse local and overseas film festivals over the years. Since 2010, "Club YEC" was founded in which free screenings and exchange activities have been held irregularly. In 2011, branch in Macau was founded to explore more channels of featuring and to strengthen the cooperation between independent filmmakers in the two cities.
