The inaugural Asian Pop-Up Cinema Series in Chicago, featuring two Hong Kong movies, was listed as one of the top film events this fall by Crain’s Chicago.

Kicking off the film series on September 16 was the romantic comedy “Women Who Flirt” by Hong Kong director Pang Ho-cheung.

The series was organized by a new Chicago-based nonprofit arts organization, Sophia’s Choice. It is dedicated to promoting Asian cinema and providing a platform for Asia’s movie industry to cooperate with the U.S. The series aims at cultivating the general public’s interest in Asian culture via film.

Speaking at the opening night reception, Deputy Director of Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office in New York (HKETONY) Michael Kwan said the Hong Kong government is committed to supporting the territory’s film industry.

Sponsored by HKETONY, the series also featured the award-winning Hong Kong movie “A Simple Life” (2012) directed by Ann Hui.
