I am writing in response to the article 'Have a reel good time' (Young Post, April 20).

I totally agree that joining a film club, borrowing DVDs from public libraries, or accessing the Hong Kong Film Archive are good ways of boosting awareness of Hong Kong's film heritage among young people.

Nowadays, many young people illegally share files on the internet either because they are influenced by their peers or because the technology is easy to use. But as the article said, there are many easy ways to watch films legally and young people don't need to resort to something illegal.


Our Lady of the Rosary College Thanks for your letter, Kitty. I really like Broadway Cinematheque.

I went there a couple of weeks ago to see a movie and enjoyed hanging out in the Kubric Cafe afterwards. The $100 membership is a good deal - you get access to their movie library.

At the moment, my favourite director is Hayao Miyazaki. I watched Howl's Moving Castle about six months ago and since then I have been catching up on his earlier films. He really is the master of animation.
