Writer-director Felix Chong Man-keung’s Project Gutenberg leads the field for the 38th Hong Kong Film Awards with a whopping 17 nominations.
Chong has co-directed hits (The Silent War, the Overheard trilogy) alongside Alan Mak Siu-fai but Project Gutenberg is just the second film for which he has a sole directing credit.
Aaron Kwok Fu-shing and Chow Yun-fat co-star in the crime thriller, a convoluted story revolving around a counterfeit-money gang, which is nominated in every category except best new performer and best new director (the film was not eligible for either).
Here are the nominees of Project Gutenberg:
