‘Port of Call’ Leads Hong Kong Awards Nominations

Nominations for the Hong Kong Film Awards put “Little Big Master,” “The Taking of Tiger Mountain” and “Port of Call” among the front runners for reward. “Port of Call” scooped 13 nominations in total.

Those three along with “Ip Man 3” and independent movie “Ten Years” are all also up for the best picture award.

“Ten Years,” a dark imagining of what Hong Kong will be like in 2025, made its debut in a local festival in October and originally screened only on one screen. However, it has recently been gathering box office momentum and enough attention for one of the mainland Chinese tabloids to decry its vision of a territory steamrollered by the politics and language of the People’s Republic.

Best director nominations go to Tsui Hark (“The Taking of Tiger Mountain”,) Wilson Yip Wai-shun (“Ip Man 3”,) Philip Yung Tsz-kwong (“Port of Call”) Adrian Kwan Shun-fai (“Little Big Master”) and to Derek Yee for his “I Am Somebody,” a portrayal of film extras at China’s giant Hengdian studios.

Best new director nominations go to actor Nick Cheung Ka-fai for “Keeper of Darkness,” Lau Ho-leung for “Two Thumbs Up,” and to Raman Hui for smash mainland hit “Monster Hunt.”

The awards will be presented at a ceremony on April 3.
