‘Paddington 2’ to open Macao fest
    2017-November-7  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THE regional premiere of Paul King’s “Paddington 2” will open the second edition of the International Film Festival and Awards Macao (IFFAM), while French filmmaker Laurent Cantet will lead the event’s main competition jury.

Running Dec. 8 to 14, the Macao festival’s main competition section will feature a lineup consisting exclusively of films by first and second-time directors. The contenders include TIFF titles “Borg McEnroe” from Januz Metz and Michael Pearce’s “Beast,” “Wrath of Silence” by Xin Yukun, and Samuel Maoz’s “Foxtrot.”

Hong Kong action hero and “Rogue One” co-star Donnie Yen and Korean star D.O. have joined Jeremy Renner and Miriam Yeung as talent ambassadors for the Macao festival, where they will walk the red carpet and participate in festival events.

Also vying for contention in the competition section will be Xavier Legrand’s “Custody,” “Hunting Season” by Natalia Garagiola, “My Pure Land” by Sarmad Masud, “The Cakemaker” by Ofir Raul Grazier, “The Hungry” by Bornila Chatterjee and “Three Peaks” by Jan Zabeil.

Cantet’s jury will be composed of filmmaker Jessica Hausner, Asia-based novelist Lawrence Osborne, actress and director Joan Chen and director Royston Tan.

The Asian premiere of Saul Dibb’s “Journey’s End” will get an out-of-competition gala screening alongside Bong Joon-ho’s Netflix film “Okja,” showing on the big screen for the first time in southern China. Thai filmmaker Pen-ek Ratanaruang’s “Samui Song” also gets a gala showing with the director and cast in attendance in Macao.(SD-Agencies)
