The organisers of Harbour Fest yesterday gave an assurance that the highly anticipated highlight video of the concerts would be ready for broadcast next month. Outgoing chairman of the American Chamber of Commerce James Thompson said the video, which is set to be shown both in Hong Kong and abroad, was still being produced in the US. Since the festival ended on November 9, many observers have been wondering what happened to the promised hour-long film. The video was a key part of the organisers' pledge that Harbour Fest would help improve Hong Kong's international image, battered by the Sars outbreak. Los Angeles production company InMotion Film is still putting the video together, but Mr Thompson said he expected to receive a rough cut in the next few weeks. The featured performers also have to approve their scenes, but Mr Thompson said that should not be a problem. 'We're really looking at some time in January for showing it in Hong Kong,' he said. Satellite broadcaster Star TV will show it in Hong Kong and the rest of Asia, while cable music channel MTV will broadcast it to the rest of the world. The ABC network is set to screen it in the US around the Lunar New Year. Phoenix, the Hong Kong-based Chinese-language satellite broadcaster, is also interested in showing the film, as is CCTV. Regional mainland stations have also expressed interest, Mr Thompson said. He added that he would like free-to-air broadcasters in Hong Kong to screen the film after Star, but no agreements have been reached. TV production expenses came to $7.4 million out of the $100 million which Harbour Fest cost taxpayers. The video is expected to feature Harbour Fest's bigger names. 'We definitely wanted to get Prince and the Rolling Stones and other artists ... There will be scenes of the flavour of Hong Kong and the artists in Hong Kong,' Mr Thompson said. Local performers included Nicholas Tse Ting-fung and Twins.
