Hong Kong audiences and filmmakers’ preferences and tastes will not be the major considerations of the movie producers of Mainland-Hong Kong co-productions, an awarded filmmaker says.

“Mainland producers will not possibly give up China’s 4 to 5 billion market for Hong Kong’s hundred million market,” said Jevons Au Man-Kit, Best Director of the 36th Hong Kong Film Awards (HKFA) in a Shue Yan University talk.

Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor announced new principles of five measures agreed by central authorities, which included removing restrictions on the number of Hong Kong people and increasing the percentage of Hong Kong artists participating in mainland film productions.

The policies aim to further facilitate the entry of Hong Kong films and film practitioners into the mainland market.

Au said the measures would not promote local movies but only co-productions from Hong Kong and China.

He said local audiences should support Hong Kong movies by buying movie tickets, rather than expecting the government to promote.

Asking whether he would enter Mainland China to develop his career, he said he has no planning in short term.

“There were investors invited me to produce a movie which story settings based on Macau, however I rejected the project because the story was not interesting, although the income was very attractive,” said Au.

Au said he had various interested movie themes and projects in the coming years, therefore his short term development would not be affected by the new measures.

Besides, Au mentioned he had never been successful in applying the Film Development Fund and he expected there would be more investors boosting the development of industry.

Au directed one of the 5 stories of the HKFA Best Movie Ten Years; his latest work was Distinction in 2018.
