Hong Kong International Film Festival 2021

The Hong Kong International Film Festival (HKIFF) will take place as a hybrid event this year (April 1-12) with in-theatre, online screenings and audience-engagement events.

"A hybrid event would enable audiences to connect through an online platform without sacrificing the irreplaceable big-screen cinematic experience”.  Albert Lee, executive director - HKIFFS

The festival will announce its full programme on March 9.

Recognising the festival needed to adapt to the Covid-19 pandemic, as last year’s 44th edition of the festival was cancelled due to spikes in Covid-19 cases and therefore having to move online, Lee states “With the pandemic showing few signs of abating, we recognise the proactive need to confront the challenges by adding an online component to our festival for the first time.”

This year’s HKIFF will now stream some of the seminars, post-screening talks and other events.
