The five day "4th Hong Kong Salento International Film Festival ended today. Last night the event presented the "Salento Cinema Actor Award -- City of Tricase" to Miriam Yeung Chin Wa. The Hong Kong Italian Consul General Antonello De Riu presented the award to honor Chin Wa for her outstanding artistic achievement and contribution to the film industry.
Chin Wa was happy to receive this award. Both Andy Lau Tak Wa and Deanie Ip Tak Han have received the award before. She said, "I still have a lot of room for improvement. However this is a great encouragement, I have a great sense of satisfaction." Chin Wa stated that she and her husband Real Ting Chi Ko both supported Hong Kong film. Earlier they even took time to go to Cyberport to watch HELIOS (CHET DOH) and her husband used a credit card to order the tickets. Yet they could not get the tickets once they arrived. After going back and forth she realized that her husband bought the ticket for the Diamond Hill cinema, so they could only purchase tickets on the spot again. She said, "We messed around for a long time, many people were looking at us. I felt like I was making a comedy there."
