Hong Kong Directors' Guild Award postpones awards presentation

25 Mar – The Hong Kong Film Directors' Guild Awards recently announced that it will not be holding its annual event to present the accolades to this year's winners.

As reported on Mingpao, the guild, which announced the winners of its awards on 21 March, stated that the executive committee decided to postpone the awards presentation ceremony to a later date after the pandemic and will find alternative ways to do it.

The Hong Kong Film Directors' Guild Awards has been going on for 30 years since its establishment in 1989. The awards are given to recognise and encourage filmmakers from the perspectives of other filmmakers.

It is noted that the said award is a precursor to the Hong Kong Film Awards - that is to say that movies that won the filmmakers' approval have more chance of winning similarly at the HKFA.

On the other hand, Derek Tsang's "Better Days" was named the big winner of the said awards, winning three categories that include Best Director and Best Film.
