23 Mar – After a successful inaugural Hong Kong Film Festival (HKFF) last year, the event returns to Kuala Lumpur with eight intriguing Hong Kong films which will run from 26 to 28 March at three locations: GSC 1 Utama, GSC Mid Valley and GSC Pavilion KL.

Headlining the festival is "At The End Of Daybreak", directed by award-winning Malaysian filmmaker Ho Yuhang and whose up-and-coming actress Jane Ng Meng Hui was the first Malaysian to win Best Newcomer at the Asian Film Awards (AFA) 2010 in Hong Kong last night. Filmed in Petaling Jaya, the drama has premiered at a dozen international film festivals in Asia and Europe and won the NETPAC Award at the Locarno International Film Festival 2009 in Switzerland.

MR CINEMA: A 2007 movie made to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Hong Kong's return to China, starring Karen Mok and Ronald Cheng.

The seven other movies on showcase are "KJ: Music And Life", "Mr Cinema", "The Way We Are", "Split Second Murders", "Happy Funeral", "I Corrupt All Cops", and "Nobody's Perfect". The selection of films covers a good variety of genres, ranging from drama, comedy and romance to crime thriller and documentary. Admission is free for all screenings and HKFF moviegoers would also get a chance to win a Hong Kong trip.

Complimentary passes can be obtained from FM98.8 on first-come-first-served basis, while stocks last and patrons are to present these passes at Box Office counters at participating GSC cinemas in exchange for admissions tickets. The event is co-organised by the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office (HKETO) in Singapore and 988 Radio Station Malaysia, with the support of Golden Screen Cinemas (GSC).
