The Lau Yung directed, Chloe So Ho Yi starred film SUGAR STREET STUDIO (TONG GAI JAI PIN CHONG) was selected by the Udine Far East Film Festival. Screening across many cities in Europe, North America and Asia, Lau Yung hoped that overseas viewers would sense that Hong Kong horror film was an unique mix of comedy, touching moments and scares. He pointed out that when the film was screened in Europe it had Italian subtitles. The Hong Kong International Film Festival Association also helped him with a video to meet the audience there with. Lau Yung said, "If I would have the chance, I would want to fly over there and have exchanges with filmmakers from around the world. Unfortunately the pandemic prevented that. So in the future I would have to put more effort into make more better movies, then attend the film festival to experience the European film event."
So Ho Yi admitted that she was very disappointed about unable to walk the red carpet in Italy, but she felt very proud that her work represented Hong Kong. Another actress Wiyona Yeung Lau Ching said that the film's participation in an international film festival was the actor's honor.
