Ka Fai said that every one of his awards represented the audience's recognition of his work, for which he felt very happy about. He also would urge himself to continue to work hard, as he hoped that he would further improvement in every film.
Ka Fai's trip was very rushed, as he only stayed for three days and two nights. However he still took time to sightsee. This was his second time in London. His favorite place was Notting Hill because the area had a variety of shops and stalls. He was also able to experience the life of the locals through the products that they sold. He would also be reminded of the film NOTTING HILL.
Chan Ho Sun won Best Director with the film DEAREST, which also won Best Picture. Chan Ho Sun and Ka Fai ran into each other and had lunch at a famous Indian restaurant there. Ka Fai's birthday was last week, how did he celebrate? Ka Fai said that birthday to him has never been too special, usually dinner and cake with family.
Chan Ho Sun humbly said, "Being able to win at the China International Film Festival in London already represented that I have the audience' recognition. I am very pleased with DEAREST's performance. Of course if DEAREST will be able to receive even better performance internationally in the future, my team and I will be very happy."
"First I want to thank the China International Film Festival in London, England. I also want to thank the film company but I have to thank the audience for their support the most. They feel the story is touching, they even experienced some of the story."
