HKIFF Cine Fan Programme(Nov - Dec)

Financially supported by the Hong Kong Film Development Fund and organised by the Hong Kong International Film Festival Society (HKIFFS), a two-year pilot repertory film programme “HKIFF Cine Fan Programme” was launched in April 2013, with the aim to enrich and deepen the experience of Hong Kong moviegoers, the programme features a variety of curated contemporary, retrospective and thematic showcases, presenting national cinemas, tributes to masters, digitally restored classics, and genre films while supporting Hong Kong films and film culture. Local and overseas filmmakers and critics are invited regularly to introduce films, attend meet-the-audience sessions, conduct seminars, and join panel discussions to facilitate cultural exchange across borders.

In conjunction with the programme, the HKIFFS has introduced Cine Fan, a special privilege scheme for cineastes to enjoy ticket discounts both for the programme, and also the annual Hong Kong International Film Festival (HKIFF), the Summer International Film Festival (Summer IFF), and other associated programmes of the Society.

Farewell My Concubine - HKIFF Cine Fan
An epic spanning a half-century of modern Chinese history, Chen Kaige’s melodrama about the lives of two Peking opera stars remains to date the only Chineselanguage film to win the Palme d'Or.

Leslie Cheung gives extra poignancy to the mesmerizing character of Cheng Dieyi, who plays the concubine enamored with the “king”, but he doesn’t share his feelings and marries a prostitute.

During five decades of upheaval and atrocities, Cheng holds tight on his faith and forbidden love. A narrative of betrayals, suicides and sorrowful paradoxes, the film relentlessly examines the suffering that the warlords, Japanese, Nationalists and Communists have inflicted on ordinary people.

Zelig - HKIFF Cine Fan
Woody Allen plays Leonard Zelig in a mock-documentary about an eccentric (and fictitious) American character from the 1920s. Zelig is a misfit with a severe psychological and physiological disorder: in order to be liked and fit into a social group, Zelig is able to assume the physical appearance (and language abilities) of anyone he stands next to. Using ingenious technology,

Allen inserts himself into actual black-and-white newsreel footage from the period to chronicle the rise and fall of this "human chameleon" – a man who becomes an instant celebrity, rubs elbows with prominent figures of the era, and falls in love with his psychiatrist (Mia Farrow). This compact comedy – punctuated with Allen’s usual one-liners – is brief in length but long on ideas, pulling in observations on politics, philosophy, art, and – of course – relationships.

Ed Wood - HKIFF Cine Fan
The American filmmaker Ed Wood (Johnny Depp) famously lacked talent in directing, producing, writing and acting, but that didn’t stop him from churning out a string of campy exploitation films in the 1950s and 60s.

In fact, in the years since his death in 1978, the king of super-lowbudget grade-Z movies has been celebrated for his celluloid shocker schlock, including the cringeworthy transvestite docu-drama Glen or Glenda (1953) and Plan 9 From Outer Space (1959) , a sci-fi flick that has the dubious honor of being voted the worst movie of all time.

Tim Burton’s black-and-white bio-pic is a love letter to both guerrilla-filmmaking and Wood’s genuinely touching friendship with drug-addicted Bela Lugosi (Martin Landau), the washed-up star of the horror classic Dracula and to whom Wood offers a second chance at eternal Hollywood fame.
