Lam Ching Ha's daughter Ying Oi Lam was in the audience in support of Mommy. The forum's host was HKFW chair Ho Chiu King.

Law Kar Ying and Johnnie To Kei Fung two nights ago received the Outstanding Art Contribution award at the 2017 Hong Kong Art Development Awards. To Sir received the award from Sammi Cheng Sau Man and Louis Koo Tin Lok; Brother Kar Ying had the support of his wife Liza Wang Ming Chuen. Brother Kar Ying thanked Cantonese Opera fans. They were the world's best opera fans because they definitely would buy their own tickets. They would not ask for tickets to show their support. Sammi and Goo Jai declined their interview after they learned that To Sir declined his.

While presenting the award on the stage, Sammi said that she used to rarely make any comedy. Only To Sir with his sharp eyes discovered her comedic genes. Goo Jai said that To Sir was very unique, whenever he made his movies, he got to eat whatever he wanted from morning to night. Thus he was the happiest about getting to eat whenever he worked with him. His weight also went straight up. Although To Sir did not give a speech, he shot a video before hand and said that after over 40 years in the business he felt now was a challenging era. He hoped to cultivate even more next generation creators. He also said that TVB was a pretty good "university" because ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Next week he will scout location in the Mainland for the new film KWAN TIN DAI BAU JA, based on the Great Dalian Explosion. The new film will star Mainland and Hong Kong actors.

Speaking of Shawn Yue Man Lok becoming a father, Lau Wai Keung happily said, "I already congratulated him. I have seen the baby's photo. He told me not to reveal it. However the baby is very cute, its fingers are very long. Sons mostly don't resemble Papa and resemble Mommy more. You can tell from looking at them. The baby is very big and tall." As for a present, Lau Wai Keung said that the baby was born with a silver spoon in its mouth. Thus he would give love and told Lok Jai to spoil his wife a little. He even shared parenting tips. Lau Wai Keung said, "You have to be a little more brave with a baby. You can't be too scared. Children are actually very strong. Three month olds are stronger than us."

The film THE LEAKER (SIT MUK JEH MOON) yesterday held a Beijing press conference. Leads Francis Ng Chun Yu, Julian Cheung Chi Lam, and Charmaine Sheh Sze Man attended, shared their production experience, and led to endless screams from fans. The three leads introduced their characters at the press conference. Sheh Sze Man played a "not afraid to die" reporter, Ng Chun Yu and Cheung Chi Lam were both cops. They both agreed, "We only have a nationality difference." Actually they have worked together many times before and a classic team in the hearts of fans in general. Speaking of this collaboration, Ng Chun Yu said, "We had great chemistry during the shoot." Cheung Chi Lam joked, "We would never get tired of working together."

They played a game of truth or dare to bring out the spirit of the characters' search for truth without any regard for their lives; as artists, this segment gave them a chance to speak up for themselves and deny show business fake news. Ng Chun Yu jokingly made Ah Sheh the target, "Should be married, this one should be given to Ah Sheh." He even joked that her temper was poor and later claimed and he and Cheung Chi Lam were "at odds". Cheung Chi Lam spoke up for himself. "I can act, not just looks." Laughter was endless in the crowd.

Chapman To Man Chak recently was invited to attend the Udine Far East Film Festival in Italy. He revealed that he turned into a "wall flower" in front of his idol Johnnie To Ke Fung. "Mr. To is a frequent film festival guest. This time is the first time I run into him in such a large scene vent. Coincidentally a group of Baptist University film students come to observe, so Mr. To takes everyone to dinner. During the meal we share some experience with everyone! As Mr. To's junior, I learn a lot."

This is Ah Jat's fifth time at the film festival, but the first as a director. "This year happens to be the film festival's 20th anniversary, my film is holding its European premiere, so this trip is particularly meaningful! I get to sneak out for half a day or so, going out to look for good food, 'hanging out' at cafe in Italy absolutely is a pleasure!"
