HIFF is proud to present a special in-depth conversation with 2021 Hong Kong Filmmaker in Focus: Stanley Kwan. Join us on November 9th as we discuss his groundbreaking and illustrious career, and learn more about some of his best films.
With a long career as both a director and producer, Hong Kong New Wave master Stanley Kwan is one of the most prominent players in the Hong Kong film industry. An award winning filmmaker, Kwan first gained international acclaim with his third feature ROUGE (1987). He went on to direct Berlin award-winner CENTER STAGE (1991) starring the ephemeral Maggie Cheung in one of her best performances, and the renowned HOLD YOU TIGHT in 1997. HIFF is proud to present a special 4K Restoration of Kwan’s stunning tragic romance LAN YU (2001) which stands the test of time as one of Hong Kong cinemas greatest films.
In tandem with this program, HIFF will be presenting an online screening of CENTER STAGE as part of the Festival’s monthly HIFF SELECTS program.
