HONG KONG FILM FESTIVAL CANCELLED: The Hong Kong Film Festival, which was set to get going August 18th, has been forced to cancel its upcoming edition after spikes of COVID-19 in the region. Festival director Albert Lee confirmed: “While it is tremendously deflating, given all the hard work that we have put in, the well-being of our colleagues and the public is of the utmost importance to us.
