Tickets for the Hong Kong International Film Festival are on sale, and the first screenings of Ploy, The Love of Siam and Opapatika, are among those already marked "full house".
There are still seats for both screenings of the fourth Thai film in Hong Kong's program, Aditya Assarat's Wonderful Town, but that will surely change, since this film won at Rotterdam, was shown in Berlin and will also screen in New York.
Ploy, The Love of Siam and Opapatika are also nominees at the second Asian Film Awards, which will be given out on March 17 in conjunction with the Hong Kong fest.
Opapatika, a dark, karmic action thriller, still has some seats left for its second screening during the Midnight Heat program. Tickets to second screenings of Chukiat Sakweerakul's acclaimed, award-winning gay teen romantic drama Love of Siam and Pen-ek Ratanaruang's Ploy are also available -- for now.
The Hong Kong International Film Festival runs from March 17 to April 6.
