The Festival is honored to have the talented Hong Kong Director Mr. Johnnie To as the festival’s ambassador. In 2009, To was granted “The Ordre des Arts et des Lettres” (Order of Arts and Letters) by the Minister of culture of France. He was also an appointed jury member of the Cannes Film Festival. His first international film “Vengeance” starring the French iconic rock star Johnny Hallyday was a huge success. To’s works bear a lot of resemblance with Jean-Pierre Melville. To’s close relationship with French cinema makes him an ideal choice to represent the festival.
