Fest-set nests at Hong Kong fete

Trade Development Council throws lavish bash

Proving that there is no intra-Asian rivalry that cannot be overcome with liberal helpings of food and drink, Hong Kong’s Trade Development Council, which runs FilMart and the HAF project forum, threw a lavish bash Tuesday night.

Event was jammed as execs spilled off the upper floors of the Grand Hotel into the Favian Pub Bar downstairs. Clamor of the crowd barely subsided as speeches and presentations took place in the corner.

Participants included producers Terence Chang, San Fu Maltha, Nansun Shi, Sylvain Bursztejn plus CAA’s Peter Loehr and Unijapan’s Hiromi Aihara.
