About

Named one of Screen Daily's STARS OF TOMORROW for 2013, Cambodian-born writer-director Hong Khaou began writing for the theatre, where he participated in various attachments, including a joint initiative with the BBC and the Royal Court Theatre. He spent 7 years at Indie film distribution company Peccadillo Pictures, managing their Home Entertainment division and regularly attending film festivals and film markets for acquisition.

Making the move into filmmaking, Hong wrote and directed two short films, Spring (2011) and Summer (2006), which were selected for the Sundance and Berlin international film festivals respectively. His debut feature film, LILTING, stars Ben Whishaw as Londoner Richard, and Cheng Pei Pei as the Cambodian-Chinese mother of Richard’s recently deceased boyfriend. The film, which was produced under Film London’s Microwave Scheme, had its world premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival in the World Dramatic Competition, sold in over 12 territories internationally, and had its UK theatrical release through Artificial Eye in August.

This year also saw him receive the Sundance Institute/Mahindra Global Filmmaking Award for his new feature project MONSOON, as well as taking part in BAFTA’s Brits to Watch Initiative in Los Angeles over the summer.
