WORLD'S International Film Festival makes a welcome return after a night off for the all-important racing. Welcome, for the chance to see Hongkong actress Maggie Cheung and Taiwanese actress-turned-director Sylvia Chang in Stanley Kwan's Full Moon in New York (World, 9.30pm, Original Running Time 100 mins). It's the story of three very different Chinese women who emigrate to New York, meet by chance and discover they share the same difficulties in adjusting to their new lives. Mainlander Zhao Hong (Stchingowa) can't come to terms with her overseas Chinese husband Thomas. Even after making love she struggles to cope in English: ''Thomas, I have come . . . I came . . . I went?'' she says. (This may be cut, of course). Sylvia Chang has starred in such acclaimed films as Lawrence Ah-mon's Queen of Temple Street, as well as directed Gong Li (Judou) in Mary From Beijing. She plays Taiwanese Wang Hsiung-ping who's lived in New York for 12 years but still not had a successful relationship with a Western man. And Maggie Cheung plays Li Feng-jiao, an archetypal successful Hongkong businesswoman. This was Cheung's first film with director Kwan. Her second, Centre Stage, won her the Best Actress Award at last year's Berlin Film Festival. THE alternative - such as it is - sees neanderthal Chuck Norris yet again taking on all-comers (in this case The Russians who're invading Florida) in Invasion USA (Pearl, 9.45pm, ORT 107 mins). Utterly repellent, pathetically xenophobic, this almost makes Rambo appear inoffensive. HAVEN'T seen Filipina Dreamgirls (Pearl, midnight) but given the subject matter of three ageing Brits who go to Manila to find young brides for themselves, it sounds like it too has vast potential to cause offence. The TV play stars Bill Maynard (Oh No, It's Selwyn Froggit), comedian Charlie Drake and David Thewlis (The Singing Detective) as three Welsh has-beens, who travel to Manila to claim the brides with whom they've been corresponding by mail. ''Filipina Dreamgirls: They were young, beautiful and willing'' proclaims the blurb. Doesn't sound like overly-sensitive treatment - but judge for yourselves. THERE'S live golfing action from America's prestigious Augusta Masters in the early hours of tomorrow (Prime Sports, 4am) and it's repeated at 8am and 3pm for those less devoted to the cause. FILMS described as ''taut courtroom dramas'' seem to be two a penny these days, but one that lives up to the description is Richard Marquand's 1985 chiller Jagged Edge (Pearl, 1.35am, ORT 109 mins). Admittedly, there are faults, one being the swiftness with which lawyer Glenn Close (Reversal of Fortune) falls for her client, murder suspect Jeff Bridges (The Fabulous Baker Boys). But Joe Eszterhas's polished script coupled with plenty of twists and turns more than make up for it.
