Feature Films : Hong Kong Cinema 100 Years

Hong Kong Cinema 100 YearsHong Kong is a hub for the Chinese film industry, and the breeding ground for some of the world's best-known producers, directors and actors. It also offers a wide range of film production and post-production services and facilities.

In the past 10 years, Hong Kong films and film talent have won over 300 international awards. Many talented Hong Kong producers, directors and actors such as Johnny To, John Woo, Wong Kar Wai, Ann Hui, Tsui Hark, Jackie Chan, Tony Leung, Chow Yun-Fat, Stephen Chow, Maggie Cheung, Gordon Liu, and Michelle Yeoh have made their names in the international film arena, including a new wave of film directors such as Pang Ho-cheung, whose film EXODUS premiered at the 2007 Toronto International Film Festival.
Hong Kong is frequently visited by overseas crews making commercial films, TV programs and advertisements. Hong Kong's technical crews are acknowledged as enthusiastic and innovative professionals.

Hong Kong Filmart, the annual business exhibition running concurrently with the Hong Kong International Film Festival, is a pivotal point of interaction between filmmakers and financiers.

Hong Kong has a unique advantage in bridging the Chinese mainland with Western audiences and opening a window on the world for Chinese audiences.

The Mainland-Hong Kong co-productions have enjoyed tremendous box office success. In the past three years, seven to nine titles of the top 10 Chinese-language films of Mainland China were co-productions with Hong Kong, including HK Film Awards Best Picture Winners, THE WARLORDS and IP MAN, which will be presented at Fantasia Film Festival this year.
