MISSION & OBJECTIVE

Hong Kong International Film Festival strives to:
- foster film culture with a programme that recognizes the achievements of the past and looks forward to future.
- provide an opportunity for Hong Kong residents to appreciate films of good artistic merit from all over the world.
- promote and highlight the achievements of the cinematic scene in Hong Kong as well as deepen the appreciation of Hong Kong's cinema history.

The Hong Kong International Film Festival Society is a non-profit, non-government organization which develops, promotes and encourages creativity in the art and culture of film through the presentation of the annual Hong Kong International Film Festival (HKIFF). Apart from organizing the flagship event HKIFF each year, the Society is also committed to organize regular programmes and other film culture activities throughout the year, in order to promote the art and creative business of cinema, with an international dimension and outlook.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

The Hong Kong International Film Festival (HKIFF) is one of Asia’s most reputable platforms for filmmakers, film professionals and filmgoers from all over the world to launch new work and experience outstanding films. As a competitive event, the HKIFF serves as a platform for international film exchange, to promote better understanding between global cultures, and to discover new talents from around the world.

1. YOUNG CINEMA COMPETITION:
The Young Cinema Competition is set up to encourage young filmmakers to explore the potentials of the cinema of our times.

2. DOCUMENTARY COMPETITION:
The Hong Kong International Film Festival considers documentaries addressing social issues with aesthetical significance as an essential component of any meaningful film festival.
