Star Chinese Movies invests in high definition content

MUMBAI: Star Chinese Movies is investing in three high-definition (HD) movies that will be produced by Hong Kong filmmaker Derek Yee Tung-sing.

The first, Pandora’s Booth, is a love story starring pop idols Fiona Sit Hoi-kei and Kenny Kwan Chi-bun and is directed by Mak Kai-Kwong.

Star GM Chinese programming Jason Siu says, “We are excited to be working with the acclaimed filmmaker Derek Yee and we’re confident that his expertise in creating quality movies will further enrich the programming of Star Chinese Movies. Investing in these HD films underscores Star Chinese Movies’ commitment to continually providing great content for our audiences across Asia.”

Yee was named best director at the Hong Kong Film Awards in 1994 and 2004 for C’est La Vie, Mon Cheri and One Nite In Mongkok, respectively.

Star Chinese Movies’ HD drive launched last year with Focus: First Cuts. This is a regional film project with Andy Lau’s film unit Focus Films, for the production of six HD movies in Singapore, Taiwan, Malaysia, Hong Kong and mainland China. The first movie I’ll Call You is available exclusively on Star Chinese Movies’ VOD Service in Hong Kong, and the other five movies will also make their TV premieres on Star Chinese Movies across Asia.

The channel offers three services: in Hong Kong on PCCW’s now TV, in Singapore on StarHub Digital Cable, and in Taiwan and the Philippines via various pay-TV platforms.
