Screenings & Events

Hong Kong Cinema

This year's Hong Kong Cinema offers a remarkable quartet of first features, demonstrating the region's commitment to nurturing new talent, with the debuts themselves running the gamut in tone and style from hard-hitting drama to social realism to pulse-pounding action. Other program highlights include a toe-tapping musical biopic, a documentary portrait of an artist, and a horror-comedy about a ramshackle group of vampire hunters.
