Hong Kong directors meet Shanghai film students (with photos)

The following is issued on behalf of the Hong Kong Film Development Council:

Ten Hong Kong film directors had lively exchanges with more than 90 students from the Shanghai Theatre Academy in Shanghai today (October 21) during an experience-sharing session. The session has greatly enhanced the students’ understanding of the latest landscape of Hong Kong films.

The directors are Mr Teddy Robin, Mr Clifford Choi, Mr Stephan Yip, Mr Takkie Yeung, Mr Raymond Leung, Mr Jamie Luk, Ms Stella Sze, Mr Kevin Chu, Ms So Ching-lam and Mr Anthony Wong. They are in Shanghai to participate in the Hong Kong Films Retrospective and Hong Kong and Mainland Film Cooperation Business Matching organised by the Hong Kong Film Development Council (FDC).

The directors briefed the students on the creative development of Hong Kong films in the early days as well as developments in recent years before taking questions. Short videos on Hong Kong film productions were also shown.

The leader of the directors’ delegation, Mr Teddy Robin, encouraged the film sectors in Hong Kong and the Mainland to strengthen exchanges and co-operation. He said this could help film co-productions scale new heights.

An official Hong Kong Special Administrative Region programme for World Expo 2010 Shanghai China, the Hong Kong Films Retrospective 2010 was launched on October 18. A total of 23 acclaimed Hong Kong films are shown uncut and in their original language at the theatres of Shanghai United Circuit Co Ltd. during the five-day event to be held until October 22.

Along with the retrospective, the FDC holds the Hong Kong and Mainland Film Cooperation Business Matching to provide a platform for Hong Kong new generation directors and post-production companies to promote film projects to Mainland investors.
