Pineapple Underground Film Festival

6 Mar 2019 (Wed) - 14 Mar 2019 (Thu)

Organized by Eaton HK

Description

Eaton HK is proud to host the Pineapple Underground Film Festival (PUFF) 6th and 14th March 2019.

Dedicated to showcasing the spirit, passion and skills of bona fide independent filmmakers around the world, PUFF’s 2019 showcase will celebrate female talent, including three Hong Kong visionaries as well as writer/director Olga Korotko, whose feature film Bad Bad Winter premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 2018.

Nicola Fan, whose Hong Kong-based film Tiger by the Tail (2018) details a teenage girl's first day out of a juvenile detention center, and Tiger by the Tail (2018) director Nicola Fan will host highly anticipated Q&A sessions after the screening of their ground-breaking films.

Also on the program is an evening of lighthearted comedic short films, headlined by the world premiere of Captain Vivid, a new work from Japanese director Taku Kuroda. The cult film creator will attend the premiere in person and provide valuable insight into his outrageously witty ‘bad taste’ films.

Screenings and Q&A sessions are all FREE and take place in Eaton House on 1/F of Eaton HK. Please RSVP per below as seats are limited.

March 6th. (8-10pm) : Creativity is 原來來我 by Sharon Yeung / Tiger by the Tail ⼤大家姐 by Nicola Fan

March 14 (8-10pm) : Captain Vivid キャプテ ンビビッド by Taku Kuroda

Eaton HK
Inspired by the gritty, retro nostalgia of its Kowloon neighborhood, Jordan, Eaton HK inspires and nurtures the freedom of ideas by offering an inclusive gathering place for changemakers, creatives, and free thinkers to follow their bliss. Eaton HK is the physical arm of Eaton Workshop, a new global purpose-driven company and creative lab from Katherine Lo at the intersection of culture, media, hospitality, wellness, and progressive social change. With distinct parts—Hotel, House, Media, Wellness, and Impact- Eaton transcends the notion of a traditional hotel to provide a physical, digital, and analog platform to artists, activists, healers, and leaders in their pursuit of making the world a better place. Located in an emerging Hong Kong artist community, Eaton HK offers a variety of resources for the community, including a public radio station, a contemporary art gallery, live music venue and bar, holistic healing experiences, a professional screening room, a members-only working club, sustainable food and drink options, private event spaces for meetings, conferences, weddings, and musical performances, a retail outpost, and more. So much more than a hotel, Eaton HK is an incubator for arts and culture, a beacon for sustainability, a hub for impact initiatives, and a local connection to a global media platform.
