Not only will you be able to meet many vegans and vegetarians at Hong Kong Vegfest 2013, you’ll also be able to watch a brand new short film called “Meet the Vegans 營男型女“. The film is in Cantonese with English subtitles.
After being in Hong Kong for two years and a vegan for five years, I’ve accumulated more than enough materials to produce and write a screenplay for a short film about the misconception and stereotypical views of vegetarians and vegans in Hong Kong. “Meet the Vegans” is a comedic take of the non-vegan views of vegans in Hong Kong, and I want to tell others what a vegan lifestyle could be through a camera lens. Below is a behind-the-scene photo taken at a lunch scene in St George, Hullett House.
The film will be premiered at Hong Kong Vegfest 2013, the first vegetarian/vegan carnival in Hong Kong on October 14 (Mon) 2:00 – 2:15pm at Classroom C2, Hong Kong Adventist Academy. I’ll be emceeing on the main stage at outdoor lawn from noon but I asked my partner to cover me that time so I can attend my own premiere.
Hope to see you at Vegfest. Free admission. Those with tickets will get privilege cards at the entrance.

Time: 10:30am -4:00pm
