Film Workshop Co. Ltd. (simplified Chinese: 电影工作室traditional Chinese: 電影工作室), is a Hong Kong production company and film distributor. It was founded in April 1984 by producer/director Tsui Hark and his wife, Nansun Shi. Already a renowned director with a string of box office hits behind him, Tsui wanted to create a workshop where the foremost filmmakers could work on films with artistic merit, and at the same time, films that could be commercially rewarding for the financiers.

Films

In 1984, Film Workshop's first film, Shanghai Blues, turned out to be both a critical and commercial success in Hong Kong; and so were the two subsequent films that Tsui directed: The Working Class and Peking Opera Blues. At this time, Tsui invited other directors to join in. With Tsui producing, John Woo directed A Better Tomorrow, which grossed US$4.5 million locally to set a new record as the highest grossing motion picture in Hong Kong.

Film Workshop continues to produce the films that Tsui either produces or directs. This includes films such as A Better Tomorrow 2, A Better Tomorrow 3, the Once Upon a Time in China film series series and Seven Swords.
