This year's HKAFF runs from October 22 to November 8. Actress Karena Lam's film "Lover's Discourse" and Hong Kong actor Juno Mak's "Fuchouzhe Zhi Si" (translated as "The Death of Avenger") will be the opening films.
The focus on Hong Kong local productions reflects the recent growth in quantity and quality of Hong Kong cinema, of which the critical and boxoffice reception in the first half of 2010 proved a shot in the arm for the industry, Broadway Cinematheque director Gary Mak told The Hollywood Reporter.

The Hawaii International Film Festival (14-24 Oct) will open with Under The Hawthorn Tree .

You have to be a much more patient director to work in Hollywood. When I was shooting “The Flock,” there were unions, so many meetings to attend, and I had to repeat myself a million times and be specific about everything. I wasted so much time talking bullshit there.
I like the Hong Kong way better—the director is the king.
