Kong

Executive Director

A leading Hong Kong cinema operator and distributor, Kong is one of the world’s most respected producers. And while others are still working out how to co-produce with China, Kong and his Edko Films have been doing it for years. He hit the big time in 2000 with Ang Lee’s “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon,” a global phenomenon. Other seminal productions include “House of Flying Daggers” and “Curse of the Golden Flower,” both directed by Zhang Yimou; Stephen Chow’s “Kung Fu Hustle”; and Lee’s 2007 spy thriller “Lust, Caution.” Kong’s 2015 computer-generated fantasy “Monster Hunt” and its 2018 sequel brought in more than $350 million. Edko was among the multiplex pioneers in China, and for years, it was a Hong Kong sub-distributor for Fox and Universal.
