This website compiles information on the careers of Hong Kong women filmmakers from the 1997 handover to the present. It aims to document the contribution women filmmakers have made to Hong Kong film culture during this time and situate their work against the backdrop of recent Hong Kong history and politics. The post-1997 era has been an enormously productive period for women media artists working in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR), and they shine as major figures in local, regional, and global motion picture culture. Taking the change in sovereignty as a starting point, this website compiles information on key films by established and emerging women directors, producers, and scriptwriters in order to explore the role played by these women in highlighting specific issues involving gender, sexuality, politics, and aesthetics.
