Announcing The 2011 Hong Kong Cinema Festival

San Francisco’s first ever Hong Kong Cinema Festival has the good fortune of being the first festival in the San Francisco Film Society’s programming schedule to be held exclusively at their new primary screening location, New People Cinema. From September 23rd through the 25th those in the Bay Area will have the chance to see what our friends from the far east have been up to.

The festival consists of 7 films, and judging from the trailers – which I do with a grain of salt – there seems to be something for everyone.  There’s Sci-fi (City Under Seige), Super Hero (Mr. and Mrs. Incredible), Romance (All About Love, Don’t Go Breaking My Heart), Thriller (Punished), Drama (Merry-Go-Round), and Dramedy (Echos of The Rainbow).  Aside from there not being a single horror film on the roster, the first ever Hong Kong Cinema Festival should still be interesting.

Ticket info, trailers and full schedule information can be found after the jump
