Shaw Brothers

  • Founded: (Hong Kong)

Hong Kong based film production company. Also known as Shaw Brothers (HK) Ltd. and 邵氏兄弟(香港)公司.

In 1925, three Shaw brothers - Runje, Runme, and Runde - founded Tianyi Film Company (also called "Unique") in Shanghai, and established a film distribution base in Singapore, the precursor to the parent company, Shaw Organization. Runme and Run Run took over the film production business of its Hong Kong-based sister company, Shaw & Sons Ltd., and in 1958, a new company, "Shaw Brothers," was set up.

In 2011 Shaw Brothers was reorganized into the Clear Water Bay Land Company Limited; its film production business was taken over by other companies within the Shaw conglomerate.
