Hong Kong Film Industry on Show at American Film Market
Ninth Hong Kong Day to Feature Screenings and Seminar

HONG KONG, Nov 1, 2018 - (ACN Newswire) - The ninth Hong Kong Day returns at the American Film Market (AFM) tomorrow (1 Nov, Eastern Standard Time) in Santa Monica, California, in the United States. AFM and the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) are jointly organising the event once again, which features screenings and a seminar highlighting international opportunities for film production in Hong Kong.

New International Dynamics in the Hong Kong Film Industry

In the face of the new dynamics created by the latest generation of filmmakers, a seminar entitled "Content, Funding and Talents: The New International Dynamics in Hong Kong" on 1 Nov (Thursday) will examine the latest trends in the market. Jonathan Li, director of the acclaimed Hong Kong thriller The Brink, will share the latest developments in the Hong Kong film industry, while a representative from the Hong Kong film-pitching scheme will introduce the funding platform that is available to both Asian and international filmmakers. Attendees will have the opportunity to network with film industry leaders from Hong Kong and around the world at the Hong Kong Reception, while film premieres are being organised by Hong Kong companies from 1-3 Nov to showcase some of Asia's top productions.

"Hong Kong is an ideal production and service hub for the international film business in Asia," said Jonathan Wolf, Managing Director, American Film Market (AFM). "We are delighted to support this showcase of Hong Kong at the AFM and help build even stronger global film ties."

Chris Lo, Director, Los Angeles Office of the HKTDC added that consumer tastes are changing rapidly in the movie industry. "To keep pace with developments, the new generation of filmmakers is bringing a fresh perspective to the movie-making process to match the changing preferences of customers," Mr Lo said.
