  Film and Video Programmes

The Film Programmes Office focuses on the promotion of film and video culture in Hong Kong. In 2003, the office organised a great variety of film and video programmes, workshops and seminars which were very well received. The programmes enabled local audiences to appreciate cinematic art from all corners of the world on the one hand, and to experience diversified cultural activities in Hong Kong on the other.

Programme highlights included Hong Kong retrospectives on Archival Treasures P Spring 2003; Shaws on Screen; Leslie Legacy — His Charm, Charisma and Craft, Remembered on Celluloid; The Yins and Yangs of Ann Hui; Stage and Screen Pioneer Lo Dun and In the Footsteps of Lai Man-wai. Thematic film programmes on a selection of subjects were also organised, such as The Psychic Labyrinth of F. W. Murnau; 2-D dancing: movement in image and Looking Back: 50 Years of Korean Films.

Stars of the Shaw Brothers studios share memories of the film industry at a seminar as part of the Shaws on Screen Programme.

Special community and youth projects were presented to nurture young audiences in film and video appreciation and production. The projects included the Community Film Series; the U-Videomaker Project; the International Children Film Carnival and Video-making Day Camp. The office also joined hands with the Hong Kong Arts Centre and Videotage in organising the annual Hong Kong Independent Short Film and Video Awards and Microwave International Media Art Festival.

National film programmes, organised with various Consulate-Generals and cultural institutes, featured outstanding films and videos from many countries. In 2003, films from the Mainland, Canada, Israel, France, Germany and other European Union countries were showcased. The collaborations allowed local audiences to enjoy hundreds of productions which might otherwise not have been seen in Hong Kong through commercial channels.

To support major local film events, venue sponsorships were given to the annual Hong Kong International Film Festival and the Hong Kong Film Awards Presentation Ceremony.
