“I can’t see any cue that Hong Kong films will be great again,” says an expert in film industry at Shue Yan University.


Professor Cheuk Pak Tong, member of Hong Kong Film Development Council, said Hong Kong government should make great effort to resuscitate Hong Kong film industry.


Cheuk said Hong Kong films have been declining since 1993s, as the average number of films produced have been decreased from 300 to 30 nowadays every year.


Although Hong Kong film makers can apply funding from Film Development Fund, Cheuk said there is averaging 3.3 films are funded per year. “ If the government tries to help, the industry still cannot be recovered, that’s the problem of the industry, however, if the government does not help, that’s its problem,” he added.


Besides it, Cheuk indicated that the main malady of Hong Kong film industry is lack of market.


Cheuk said Hong Kong films have lost the markets in Mainland, Taiwan and Southeast Asia, therefore Hong Kong is the only market left. He also said Hong Kong is a small market, so the budgets for film making are limited, and this limits the choice of actors, leading to the decline in box office of overseas market. “It’s a serious problem that Hong Kong film cannot make a breakthrough in small market.”


As Hong Kong is an important city in the Great Bay Area, Cheuk said a change in the censorship system will improve the development of Hong Kong film.


Cheuk said Carrie Lam, Chief Executive of Hong Kong should have the audacity to talk with the Mainland, and suggest to build a film censorship system for the Bay Area so that Hong Kong film industry can benefit from a less-restricted policy. ”There is estimated 70 million to 100 million people living in the Great Bay Area, so the market is able to contain 600-700 films.


Cheuk said China will not change the whole film censorship for Hong Kong, but he emphasised that Hong Kong has better film production basis and system than China, so he urged young people to keep writing good scripts and do not give up.
