Hong Kong Filmmakers Get Lift

Hong Kong's Film Development Fund has allocated $23.5 million to help develop overseas markets for local films and promote Hong Kong as a location spot, the online Hong Kong iMail reported today (Tuesday).

A large chunk of that money will be spent at next May's Cannes Film Festival where Hong Kong films will be exhibited and marketed, a Hong Kong official told the publication.
