The Hollywood Reporter (THR) has announced the upcoming Next Generation Asia event in Hong Kong which will honor young industry professionals and spotlight 3D movies.

On March 25th, the magazine will moderate a panel on the future of 3D cinema that will provide insight and guidance as well as discuss its expectations. It will also present THR''s own in-depth report on the value of 3-D in the marketplace.
