10th August 2022 – (Hong Kong) The local premiere of a new film partly financed by the Film Production Financing Scheme under the Film Development Fund (FDF), “Mama’s Affair”, will be held this evening.
Two members from the MIRROR boy band, Keung To, Jeremy “Jer” Lau Ying Ting who starred in the movie will not attend the premiere today. The Emperor Motion Pictures has excluded the two members in the guest list, and it has been confirmed that the two will not show up.
“Mama’s Affair” is directed, written and produced by Kearen Pang, with Mani Fok as the other producer. The film, starring Teresa Mo, Keung To and Jer Lau, portrays the problems encountered by a middle-aged woman shouldering three different roles as a mother, wife and successful career woman, and how she eventually repairs the relationship with her family.
The Chairman of the Hong Kong Film Development Council, Dr Wilfred Wong, said, “‘Mama’s Affair’ is full of positive energy and features a popular cast. It is believed that the film will be attractive to and resonate with audiences.”
He added, “The Government will continue to boost local productions of a variety of genres through the FDF in order to promote the film sector’s long-term development.”
Since 2005, the Government has injected a total of $1.54 billion into the FDF to support a number of film production projects and other film-related projects. Since 2007, the FDF has financed 57 film projects, involving total funding of about $216.57 million. The production budget for “Mama’s Affair” was around $10 million, with government finance amounting to $4 million.
