Donnie Yen and Zhao Wei To Appear At 4th Annual New York Chinese Film Festival

Hey, New York, it's time for that other Asian film festival, one that's so star-packed, you'll wonder how you've missed it.  Since 2010, the New York Chinese Film Festival has quietly promoted some of the latest features from Hong Kong and the Mainland and hosted some of China's biggest names.  In previous years, superstars like Zhang Ziyi, Leon Lai, Aaron Kwok, Daniel Wu, Cecilia Cheung, Ching Siu-Tung, Han Geng and Vivian Hsu have graced the festival.  Though of a shorter duration than in previous editions, the 2013 NYCFF seems equally mighty.

The 4th Annual New York Chinese Film Festival kicks off November 5th-7th, 2013.  This year, the excellent Donnie Yen {Ip Man, Sha Po Lang, Flash Point} returns to our shores to premiere Special ID.  Superstar actress Zhao Wei {Shaolin Soccer, Red Cliff, Painted Skin} brings her Golden Horse-nominated directorial debut, So Young, to the festival.  Other filmmakers included in this still-developing roster are Miriam Yeung, star of Love Undercover and Love in the Buff, Larry Yang and Wesley Wong, the director and star of Sorry, I Love You, and actor Wu Xiubo, star of Finding Mr. Right, and John Woo's upcoming film, The Crossing.  All the guests are expected to appear in Q&As at the screenings

    Hi David, sorry about that. The announcement is so new, they don't seem to have their ticket outlets in place, yet. The CAAC link is working now for tickets for the opening night film, So Young. You can also buy directly through Lincoln Center's site.
