Welcome!

The Hong Kong Movie Database (HKMDB) is a place to freely look up highly detailed information about films made in Hong Kong, or films associated in some way with Hong Kong film production.

The HKMDB's usefulness and uniqueness comes from the data being completely bi-lingual. It is in the Chinese language (Traditional/Big5 encoding) as well as in English. And although the overall site is geared primarily toward English, the site's data is 100% based in the Chinese language. No films or persons are added to this database without first having a Chinese name.

The HKMDB data is meticulously maintained by the hard work and extreme dedication of Dennis Lee and Calros Sanchez, along with the Immortals and the Editors (Michael Kistner, williamwan, Gaijin84, Bearserk, MrBooth, Heinz, Magic Wong, Harlock, j.crawford, STSH, ewaffle, and others).

The site's *nix server, SQL database, back-end code, and markup, have been maintained by Bob Kasten since 2002.

(NOTE: at one time this location did host a Hong Kong film discussion forum. However it was eventually deemed best to dedicate the forum for use by the site's data maintainers. Other places are better suited for such discussions. Henceforth this public area of the site's forum will be used for announcements.)
