Hong Kong Day at the American Film Market (AFM®) is set to open tomorrow in Santa Monica

HKTDC

Hong Kong Day at the American Film Market (AFM®) is set to open tomorrow in Santa Monica, United States. Chris Lo, Director, Los Angeles, Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) and Jonathan Wolf, Managing Director, American Film Market (AFM®) welcomed the eighth edition of the event, which is jointly organised by the AFM® and the HKTDC. Hong Kong Day features events and screenings highlighting international opportunities for film production in Hong Kong.

 

Hong Kong’s new movie scene

A new generation of filmmakers is transforming Hong Kong’s movie scene. Reflecting this trend, a seminar entitled “The Changing Hong Kong Movie Scene: What is New, How and Why” will feature young directors and distributor from Hong Kong discussing the latest developments in local cinema and how new Hong Kong movies are different from conventional ones. A Hong Kong Reception will also be held for attendees to network with film industry leaders from Hong Kong and around the world. Meanwhile, film premieres from 2 to 5 November by Hong Kong companies will showcase some of Asia’s top productions.

 

“Hong Kong is an ideal production and service hub for international film business in Asia,” said Mr Wolf. “We are delighted to support this showcase of Hong Kong at the AFM® and help build even stronger global film ties.”

 

His remarks were echoed by Mr Lo. “Trivisa, directed by three young directors, won Best Film and Best Director at the 36th Hong Kong Film Awards, where half of the winners were new-generation directors or their productions,” he said. “These impressive results not only proved their success, but also showed the world that Hong Kong has much more to offer than just action movies.”

 

Mr Lo added that new-generation directors are reshaping Hong Kong cinema by making movies with a distinct local flavor, at relatively low costs and within short time frames – attributes that distinguish them from the action genre that international markets are more familiar with. “Their movies are bringing exciting changes to the local and even international movie scene, providing new options for the global film market,” he said.
