Shaw Studios 邵氏影城 | Film Facilities | Hong Kong


With a history spanning over 60 years, Shaw Studios has been a global leader in the production of Chinese-language theatrical and television content. Home of over one thousand feature films (many of which are now considered classics of Chinese cinema), Shaw Studios, one of the largest and most advanced film facilities in Greater China, is primed for the demands of today’s diverse, global production community.

Shaw Studios is the crowning achievement in the celebrated lives of its late founders Mr and Mrs Run Run Shaw, legendary film and television pioneers and venerated philanthropists.

For six decades, the endowments of Mr and Mrs Shaw have put them among the most generous benefactors of academic and healthcare institutions in greater China, Southeast Asia and even as far as North America and Europe. Their commitment to film, media, the arts, education and healthcare now lives on through the work of Shaw Studios, the Shaw Foundation and the Shaw Prize.

Shaw Studios began moving in phases from its historical location in Clearwater Bay to Tseung Kwan O and now comprises one million square feet of built space spread over 10 acres, all connected via robust 10-gigabit fibre-optic backbone.

New construction commenced in 2000 and operations began in 2005. This year sees the studio facilities commence a major upgrade cycle to keep pace with ever-increasing demands of the global digital production era.
The studios service film productions and co-productions, as well as feature and television projects from greater China and overseas, and increasingly streaming production in all its forms from all over the world.

A new initiative undertaken by Shaw Studios, the Shaw Creative Hub is a collaborative space for aspiring film makers. Comprising 11,000 square feet in its initial phase, it is part of Shaw Studios’and The Shaw Foundation’s commitment to support the film community of Hong Kong and the Greater Bay Area.

To reach their ultimate goal of making a theatrical film, many starting filmmakers would first gain experience in production. For this reason, the Shaw Creative Hub supports the entire chain of content with co-working spaces, hot desks, meeting rooms, pantry, post production and recording suites, filming backdrops, green-screen stage, chillout areas and private offices. The basic post production offerings are backed up by the main facilities of Shaw Studios, with some of Asia’s largest and best-equipped sound stages and recording suites, which are Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision compliant.

Plans are underway to host seminars, networking events and masterclasses conducted by seasoned practitioners in film production and distribution.

Further downstream, the Shaw Creative Hub plans to include office and networking support facilities for companies and experienced professionals in film production, distribution, film festivals and film technology, to create a vibrant entertainment ecosystem.


In order to support the wide range of production needs in Hong Kong, the Greater Bay Area, Hollywood and the world, Shaw Studios is adopting a two-prong approach.

At the grassroots level, Shaw Studios is committed to supporting and nurturing young filmmakers by offering facilities and mentorship gratis, or at deeply subsidized levels. It has started programs with Hong Kong government-supported film bodies such as Create Hong Kong and the city’s largest film association, the Federation of Hong Kong Filmmakers.

From the 1970s to 1990s, through the work and visibility of such icons as Mr Run Run Shaw and Shaw Brothers, Hong Kong ranked as one of the world’s top three exporters of film.
Headwinds soon arrived in the form of escalating production costs, rampant piracy, and uncertainties and challenges fitting into a massively growing mainland Chinese market. Despite these, creative talent in film and media continues to thrive in Hong Kong. Shaw Studios is committed to do its part to help the industry revive and evolve into the new global content production in all its forms.

Besides supporting grassroots programs, Shaw Studios is actively reinforcing its technical skills and services through partnerships with the region’s best film service companies.
Pre-eminent post production facility in the Australian region providing innovative state of the art technology, equipment and workflows in addition to world-class service and support. Spectrum Films is a hub for storytellers to collaborate and achieve their creative vision.
