Movie Mix: Summer International Film Festival 2018
Why We Recommend it
This summer festival screens an eclectic and interesting program peppered with movies across genres, countries and decades, including Jevons Au’s Distinction.
Opening with the celebrated Japanese futuristic fantasy film Mirai (Japan, 2018), the HK Cine Fan Summer Film Festival will showcase 36 films across Hong Kong.
The cherry-picked program, presented and curated by the Hong Kong International Film Festival Society, includes newly released titles from all over the world, including Touch Me Not (Romania/Germany 2018), the controversial Golden Bear winner at this year’s Berlinale; Hurry Go Round (Japan, 2018), a documentary on the late guitarist of pioneering heavy metal band X JAPAN; First Reformed (USA, 2017) a drama film inspired by the works of Robert Bresson and Carl Th. Dreyer; and Distinction (Hong Kong, 2018), a social drama by Ten Years director Jevons Au.
The summer festival will also be bringing all-time classics back to the silver screen. This year’s edition will see a special programme dedicated to legendary star Audrey Hepburn, screening Roman Holiday (1953), Breakfast At Tiffany’s (1961) and My Fair Lady (1964), among others.
In addition to movie screenings, the festival plays host to post-screening talks.
