Having a press accreditation at the
International Film Festival) is useful if you want to take photos, to video
shoot smiling movie stars at press conferences or films premieres, or to interview
people. But having a press accreditation at the
HKIFF is completely useless
if you want to have tickets for the
award gala movies and films screened at the
Hong Kong Film Archive
(where there are usually the most rare and interesting movies screened).
basically, if a journalist
wants to see other movies at this festival, he/she has to wait to see if the
tickets are not sold out, before having his/her ticket. If it’s sold out, well,
too bad, no movie for you. Because of this strange system (How can you do a
good interview if you can’t watch the movie?) I got screwed many times. When I
was able to attend some premiere screenings (
Run Papa Run or
Election 2 for
example), it’s because I got the tickets from friends.
So, this year, I took my precautions, and stayed awake until 3.00 am
(French time which means 10.00 am Hong Kong time) to buy online my
Incident premiere screening ticket. A few minutes later, It
was booked! (Now, all the tickets are sold out
– of course). So for once, I’m 100% sure that I’ll be able to watch a
HKIFFopening film. Unless I miss my plane...
