ifva+ Nov: No indies left for Hong Kong mainstream cinema?
7 / 11 / 2014 (Fri) | 7:30pm | agnès b. CINEMA, Hong Kong Arts Centre


There is this view that a seasoned film promoter would just be responsible for idea execution and loose their edges once co-opted to the mainstream cinema— does this hold true at all? What does mainstream mean to indies today? What would film critic, mainstream film distributor and producer, as well as independent filmmaker say about that? How can directors negotiate their ways between independent production and commercial interests? Each guest will examine traces from mainstream films for answers.

Moderator: Longtin (Film Critic, Writer and Curator)

Ann Hui
(Renowned Hong Kong Film Director)
Heiward Mak (Director, Scriptwriter, Dumb Youth Productions & Entertainment Creator)
