The Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office in Brussels (HKETO, Brussels) and Create Hong Kong jointly support the participation of Hong Kong films in the 14th CinemAsia Film Festival held in Amsterdam, the Netherlands on 10-15 May 2022.

Hong Kong films are enjoying a strong presence at the Festival, with Longman Leung’s biographical drama Anita, depicting the life of iconic canto pop star Anita Mui, chosen to open the Festival. 

Six other Hong Kong productions are being screened, namely Man Lim Chung’s Keep Rolling, Cheuk Cheung’s Bamboo Theatre, Chiu Sin-Hang’s One Second Champion, Stanley Kwan’s Lan Yu, Ann Hui’s Love After Love and Chan Kin Long’s Hand-rolled Cigarette which has been selected to take part in the Competition programme.

HKETO, Brussels hosted a networking reception for members of the international film industry in the evening of 10 May, which was followed by the official opening of the Festival.

Addressing the audience, Special Representative for Hong Kong Economic and Trade Affairs to the European Union, Mr Eddie Cheung, said Hong Kong films are strong testimony to Hong Kong’s unique creative atmosphere where Chinese and Western cultures converge and the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Government would continue to support the Hong Kong film industry.

Mr Cheung highlighted that with a flourishing arts scene, Hong Kong is rapidly becoming a major arts centre in Asia, a hub for cultural exchanges between China and the rest of the world. 

"The year of 2022 marks the 25th anniversary of the establishment of the HKSAR.  I hope that you will be able to come to Hong Kong soon and see the latest spectacular developments for yourselves as our city heads into a new era of stability, prosperity and opportunity," he said.
