Hong Kong Film Industry Shines at Cannes Film Market 2024

Hong Kong Film Development Council (FDC), Create Hong Kong (CreateHK), and Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) have collaborated to present “Hong Kong Films @ Cannes 2024” at the Marché du Films 2024, commencing on May 14, 2024.

2024 marks a significant year for Hong Kong’s presence in Cannes.

The campaign, comprising exhibitions, seminars, forums, market screenings, and networking events, aims to showcase Hong Kong professionals in the film industry on the international stage and explore potential business opportunities.

Throughout the Cannes fortnight, Hong Kong will exhibit the vibrancy of its cinema through diverse new productions, with a focus on emerging local talents. The campaign includes captivating exhibitions, thematic seminars, forums, networking events, and the highly anticipated Hong Kong Night, providing invaluable opportunities for collaboration and industry networking.

A delegation of Hong Kong film talents, including renowned directors Stanley Kwan and Soi Cheang, veteran actors Louis Koo and Raymond Lam, along with emerging actors Terrance Lau and Rachel Leung, will visit the Festival and Market. They will also participate in panel discussions on Europe-Asia co-production, Hong Kong’s action cinema, and rising talents.

Dr. Wilfred Wong, FDC Chairman, expressed delight in showcasing some of the most exciting Hong Kong productions and promising talents in Cannes.

Key players in the Hong Kong industry are exhibiting their latest productions at the Market. The Hong Kong Pavilion at Riviera J11 hosts six exhibitors, facilitating business partnerships and collaborations. International Village 117 @ Riviera offers various events and networking opportunities. Additionally, major film production companies, including Emperor Motion Pictures and Media Asia, stage their presence at the Market.

The seminar “Hong Kong Perspective in Asia’s Film Market” on May 15 discusses how Hong Kong supports international filmmakers to tap into Asian markets.

The campaign aims to catapult Hong Kong companies into the global spotlight, amplifying their presence and forging lasting connections.

The comprehensive promotion campaign at Marche du Film equips participants with a deeper understanding of Hong Kong’s unique position as the East-meets-West Centre for International Cultural Exchange and the Regional Intellectual Property Trading Centre.
