Hong Kong cinema, once a beacon of cinematic excellence, faces a new era where emerging talents are urged to hone their craft through more grounded works, as highlighted by director Derek Yee during a recent forum in Shanghai.

Titled "Emerging Power of Hong Kong Cinema in Conversation with Derek Yee", the forum took place at the 26th Shanghai International Film Festival on June 17. Yee, accompanied by eight young actors and actresses born between the 1990s and 2000s, discussed the industry's shifting landscape and the challenges and opportunities it presents.

Notable talents like actress Rachel Leung, actor Henick Chou, and Leung Chung-hang, who starred in the acclaimed film In Broad Daylight, a triple award-winner at the 42nd Hong Kong Film Awards, were part of the panel.
