The Amos Why directed, Kaki Sham and Jennifer Yu Heung Ying starred film FAR FAR AWAY (LUEN LO SHAN KA LA) after 8 weeks in release passed HK$ 10 million at the box office. Two nights ago the director in order to thank the audience for their support attended an audience appreciation event at the Golden Scene cinema with producer Kwong Pui Sze and opened bottles of champagne to celebrate the box office success. FAR's production budget was HK$ 2.7 million. Before the release Amos Why hoped to make a movie that would make money, because his earlier films DOT 2 DOT (DIM DUI DIM) and NAPPING KID (YIK HEUNG SAU GWAI) both lost money. Now his dream has come true. Reportedly the film company later would hold a celebration.

Hong Kong films recently have been thriving. The Sunny Chan Wing Sun directed, Dayo Wong Tze Wa, Louis Cheung Kai Chung, Stephy Tang Lai Yan, Ivana Wong Yuen Chi, Lin Minchen and Peter Chan Cham Man starred TABLE FOR SIX (FAN HEI GUNG SUM) after 3 weeks in release made HK$ 44.88 million as of two days ago. Tze Wa earlier due to his play THE LAST GIFT was unable to attend audience appreciation events with his co-stars. However THE LAST GIFT's run has ended, Tze Wa would also return to the team. Yesterday the TABLE official site announced that the full team would attend the audience appreciation event on October 2nd to thank the audience for their support. All 6 actors would share the production experience with everyone then.
