February 8, 2007 - An animated promotional trailer featuring Hong Kong entertainment ambassador Mr Tony Leung Chiu-wai will be shown at 100 Hong Kong theatres and selected outdoor venues, beginning at the lunar New Year.
Created and directed by well-known Hong Kong artist Mr Eric Kot Man-fai, the 45-second film is part of the publicity campaign for Entertainment Expo, Hong Kong, to be held from March 20 to April 15.
Acting in a computerised, special-effects setting, Mr Leung calls for community support for the Expo. "This will be my third year as Entertainment Expo's ambassador, and I'm very happy to be promoting the Hong Kong entertainment industry," says Mr Leung. "Much of Entertainment Expo is open to the public, and I hope all of Hong Kong will support it."
"Get into the Scene" is the theme of the third Entertainment Expo, Hong Kong. The multi-media event will showcase the finest in Asian film, digital entertainment, music and TV.
Three Entertainment Expo events - Hong Kong International Film Festival, International Film & TV Market, and Hong Kong-Asia Film Financing Forum - will, for the first time, open simultaneously.
