Even if Oscar season is over and done with, Hong Kong cinephiles can still satiate their film appetites with the upcoming Hong Kong International Film Festival, which starts from March 18 and lasts until April 1. This annual event allows Hong Kong viewers to catch early previews of movies, critically-acclaimed foreign films, cinematic classics, indie productions and films that are generally not available at local cinemas. With screenings taking place all over town, there’s really no excuse not to expand your repertoire beyond Hollywood blockbusters and superhero movies. From masterpieces like 2001: A Space Odyssey to heartwarming local movies like Still Human starring Anthony Wong, these are our pick from this year’s lineup. By Chloe Li
