NEW DELHI: Cine Fan Summer International Film Festival to be held next month in Hong Kong will open with Woody Allen's Magic in the Moonlight and close with Chang Jung-chi's Partners in Crime.
Organised by the Hong Kong International Film Festival Society, the festival will be held from 12 to 26 August.
Magic in the Moonlight is the latest comedy from writer-director Woody Allen whose Midnight in Paris (2011) was the closing film of the summer festival in 2011. Golden Scene is set to distribute the film locally later this year.
A murder mystery set in a high school, Partners in Crime had its world premiere last week as the opening film of the Taipei Film Festival held from 27 June and slated to conclude on 19 July.
It is also part of the Taiwan festival's New Talent Competition and the Taipei Film Awards competition.
Previously named the Summer International Film Festival, this year's festival has been renamed the Cine Fan Summer International Film Festival, after the repertory film programme the festival launched in April last year.
