Description

Join us for a very special preview event for the upcoming Hong Kong Cinema online film series, co-hosted by SFFILM and presenting sponsor Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office, San Francisco (HKETO).

Featuring three diverse and exciting new films and one reprise from the 2017 SFFILM Festival, this year’s Hong Kong Cinema showcases emerging Hong Kong directors with each online screening supplemented by a live-streamed conversation with key cast and crew members. These films tackle important issues such as disability, aging in the gay community, and mental illness with insight and candor. Stellar performances abound, including career-best roles for superstars Shawn Yue, Alex Lam, and Anthony Wong. Though we’ll miss seeing one another in person, this year’s program offers exciting opportunities to virtually engage with an exciting roster of up-and-coming international talent in front of and behind the camera.

Attendees will be welcomed by San Francisco’s HKETO Director Ivanhoe Chang, while SFFILM’s Associate Director of Programming Rod Armstrong will give a brief rundown of this year’s film selections and special virtual conversations.
