TORONTO, June 8, 2022 – ARHT Media Inc. (“ARHT Media” or “ARHT” or the “Company“) [TSXV:ART], the global leader in the development, production and distribution of high-quality and low-latency hologram and digital content, announced today that it will be working with the Hong Kong International Film Festival (HKIFF) to beam notable film personalities to several international film festivals. This will include Hong Kong producer and director Stanley Kwan, who will be beamed to Bali for a live Q&A and introduction of his critically acclaimed classic film Rogue, for the opening ceremony program scheduled for June 9th, 2022.
As part of amplifying Asian, Hong Kong, and Chinese film culture and expanding its profile worldwide, HKIFF has organized a series of collaborations later this year with several other International Film Festivals across the globe, through a program named: Making Waves: Navigators of Hong Kong Cinema. HKIFF will be utilizing ARHT’s HoloPresenceTM technology to beam leading producers, directors, and actors active in Hong Kong’s film industry to screenings, featuring Hong Kong cinema. Other activations are planned for London, Sydney, Singapore, Bangkok, Stockholm, and Prague later this year.
“Using ARHT’s live hologram technology, we’re able to create something very special as we collaborate with International Film Festivals across the world, and work to raise the profile of Hong Kong cinema,” said Head of Events & Marketing, Lemon Lim. “With several collaborations planned across the globe, the ability to bypass difficult travel while giving individuals the ability to appear remotely as live holograms makes it possible to attract notable speakers at screenings. ARHT’s technology makes it feel like the speaker is with you in person, so the experience is quite memorable.”
“We’re very excited to work with HKIFF on this very unique global tour as they continue to elevate the profile of Hong Kong cinema,” stated ARHT CEO Larry O’Reilly. “This is a perfect partnership to leverage our HoloPresenceTM technology and global delivery capabilities offering the most lifelike live holograms capable of real-time interaction. HKIFF is one of the oldest film festivals in Asia and it’s great to see them embrace our innovative technology to expand Hong Kong cinema into more international markets. This is a true testament to our ability to deliver impact while improving efficiency, overcoming geographies, and saving costs.”
