When a person joins a Chinese dating site, he or she is usually interested in finding someone to enjoy a romance with. However, the simple act of joining such a site actually opens up one’s eyes to a whole new culture.
The Chinese culture has a rich history, unique traditions, and arts such as film. If you’ve joined a Chinese dating site, you might be interested in hearing a little bit about this year’s Hong Kong International Film Festival.
The festival runs from March 23rd through April 6th. Several venues throughout Hong Kong host the films, including the Hong Kong Cultural Center, Hong Kong City Hall, the Hong Kong Arts Center, and the Grand Cinema, to name a few.
The Hong Kong International Film Festival is an important cultural event because it allows movies to be screened freely in China, which is not something that normally happens throughout the year.
This year marks the 39th presentation of the festival, and it is scheduled to open with Sylvia Chang’s Murmur of the Hearts. Philip Yung’s Port of Call will close the event, and the festival will host the world premiere for both films.
It isn’t just Chang’s movie that will be featured during the festivities; there will also be a tribute to her as she is considered one of the most important Chinese filmmakers of her time. For this film, she returns to her native Taiwan.
Overall, there will be 260 films from 56 different countries and regions. Of these films, 78 will be making their Asian and world premieres.
