Film Buff Heaven

The 10th Annual “Made in Hong Kong” Film Festival opens tonight at the Freer Gallery, with Johnnie’s To’s “Throw Down.”

The Festival runs every Friday and Sunday now through August 28 and is always a great way to catch both classics and recent hits of the genre. This year’s group includes the first all-CGI entry, “Dragonblade,” which I definitely want to catch.

Films are shown in the comfortable Meyer Auditorium, with free tickets distributed up to one hour before showtime. It’s usually very popular so get in line early.

The Freer is also currently showcasing “Bollywood Noir” films. Take advantage.
