Five local film productions have been picked by a panel to be presented in the Greater Bay Area for investment, announced the Cultural Affairs Bureau (IC).
Invitations to apply for presentation opened in June. The shortlisted local productions will be presented at the 2019 Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area Film Production Investment and Trade Fair, which is co-organized by the IC, the Film Administration of Guangdong Province and Create Hong Kong.
The selected film productions will have the chance to attract investors at the fair, which will be held on September 10 and 11. The films include “One Night in Macao” by Lou Ka Hou, “At Least Not Today” by Io Lou Ian, “Midnight Taxi” by Hoi Kuok Meng, “Dreaming Girl” by Vong Tin Leong and “The Fortune Tower” by Wong Teng Teng.
The filmmakers will meet investors and producers from Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macau, promote their projects and seek cooperation opportunities at the fair.
The films were chosen for the creativity of the story, experience and execution capability of the applicant and the production team, feasibility and budget.
This year’s jurors were Secretary General Zheng Dawei of the Guangdong Motion Picture Industry Association, Macau film director and producer Albert Chu and film program planner Rita Wong.
Inaugurated in 2014, the fair aims to further open communication channels for local filmmakers and producers, and explore potential Macau film projects. Staff reporter
