Hong Kong International Film Festival -- UPDATED


The Hong Kong International Film Festival is opening soon and there were plenty of stars in attendance at a related gala on February 26, 2009, including Simon Yam, Daniel Wu, Fan Bing-Bing, and Zhang Jingchu from The Beast Stalker.

I'm curious about the new Ann Hui film with Simon Yam and Zhang Jinchu, as well as -- obviously -- the Derek Yee film with Jackie Chan.

It's funny that the excitement is not so much over "a new Jackie Chan film" but "a new Derek Yee film!" (One that features Fan Bing-Bing as well! LOL!)

I hope other bloggers -- maybe YTSL? -- will cover the festival and/or go to a few of the screenings and report back.

Details on the festival are here.
