There are many good movies in the history of Hong Kong. Most citizens of the SAR are aware that we have a rich cinematic heritage, which includes a substantial number of wonderful films. “100 Must-See Hong Kong Movies” aims at correcting that misguided perception. It is a screening programme presented by the Hong Kong Film Archive, designed to let viewers experience some of the best movies made in Hong Kong. The programme will be shown at the Film Archive from October to celebrate the venue’s 10th anniversary. The archive and a panel of six experts have chosen 100 Hong Kong titles from 1916 to 1999. The films were selected mostly on artistic grounds, with some chosen based for their historical significance. It is hoped the selection encourages more discussion on and research of Hong Kong cinema.
