HK audience moved by film premiere

What a night it was – over 100 major supporters, celebrities and the media in Hong Kong to celebrate the launch of our new 20-minute film, “Moon Bear Rescue: A decade on…”, and the launch of celebrity Karen Mok’s new public service announcement, “Stain”. 


The evening, “Bears on Film”, saw old friends and new supporters meeting together at the British Consulate-General – a venue kindly arranged by generous long-standing supporter Caroline Sprod (pictured here with husband Ali Bullock who has also been so generously helping us with his photography skills - together with lovely assistant Mandy - both last year and this.

The film drew gasps of sadness from the audience as, this year, we have deliberately featured the more stark reality of bear farming in the hope that supporters everywhere can help us to spread the word responsibly and help to accelerate the end of this truly hideous practice. 

Our heartfelt thanks to Charles Edwards and his team at Media Village who, together with Patrick Tom and our own Marketing Director Juanita, worked so hard in the creation of this hard-hitting update of our work, and of course to Karen Mok and her family (mum Eleanor, dad Alan and brother Trevor) for their long-standing support of the bears and deep commitment to our work and goal of ending bear farming Asia-wide. Karen also graciously agreed to be our Asia Patron and we look forward to working more closely together into the future to help protect all animals across the Asian continent.

Grateful thanks too to Henry and Kitty Wong, who so generously sponsored the whole production and distribution of the film. And lastly big bear hugs to lovely Andy Chworowsky, who did such a fantastic job as MC.
