You are cordially invited to be a guest of HKETO London at the upcoming Easter edition of Focus Hong Kong (31 March to 6 April 2021).
Focus Hong Kong was launched in February 2021 as a UK film festival dedicated to celebrating the amazing cinema and filmmakers of Hong Kong. The festival was run by the team behind Chinese Visual Festival and supported by HKETO London. Following our successful Chinese new year edition, we are delighted to launch the Easter edition which will run from 31 March to 6 April 2021.
The Easter edition will give audiences across the UK the chance to enjoy six acclaimed Hong Kong movies at the comfort of their home anytime during the 7-day period. The upcoming programme features three UK premiers of highly-acclaimed dramas of recent years (“I Still Remember” (二次人生) (2021); “Beyond the Dream” (幻愛) (2019); “My Prince Edward” (金都) (2019)), two 4K restoration of classic martial arts epics (“Throw Down” (柔道龍虎榜) (2004); “Once Upon A Time in China” (武狀元黃飛鴻) (1991)); and an award-winning transgender drama (“Tracey” (翠絲)(2018)). Similar to the February edition, a series of short films from the Fresh Wave programme would also be made available. For details of this fantastic selection, please visit the Festival website: https://focushk.chinesevisualfestival.org/.
