A Season of Cultural Festival for Hong Kong

Residents in bustling Hong Kong have plenty to choose from when it comes to cultural events. Art, music, dance, movie, and drama festivals, as well as various cultural weeks and painting exhibitions have been held this year and some of them have featured works from the mainland.

The "2005 Chinese Film Panorama" is underway in Hong Kong and a dozen recent mainland films have debuted during the event. The award-winning films include Lu Xun, Shanghai Dreams, Huayao Bride in Shangrila, Letter from an Unknown Woman and a documentary about the war of resistance against Japanese aggression called, For the Victory.

The Hong Kong Art Festival earlier this year featured some of the best from the global art scene. Thirty art troupes from around the globe combined with local art groups to stage more than a hundred shows. The performances included ballets, musicals, dramas, and acrobatics. Organizers discounted tickets for students to attract younger crowds.

Right now Hong Kong is hosting the Latin Art Festival. Artists from Cuba, Columbia, Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Venezuela and Peru are mingling with local performers to provide the authentic Latin flavor in music and dance.

Mainland art troupes regularly perform in Hong Kong. The Tibet Song and Dance gala, as the major part of the Tibet Cultural Week, and the Peking opera classic Sha Jia Bang, about the war of resistance against Japanese aggression, were the highlights.

A flute concert featured members from 16 local bands and six-hundred residents. The event was called the "Chinese Flute Marathon" and could set a world record. And soon Hong Kong will hold "Yue Opera Day" with the aim of promoting the local style of opera.
