Hong Kong International Film Festival
announces new August dates

 

The Hong Kong International Film Festival Society (HKIFFS) announces plans today to hold the 44th Hong Kong International Film Festival (HKIFF44) from 18-31 August 2020.

 

The flagship 14-day event is financially supported by Create Hong Kong, with FWD as its main sponsor.    

 

Executive Director Albert LEE said HKIFFS had decided to re-launch HKIFF44 after the Hong Kong government began easing restrictive measures, including allowing local cinemas to re-open, in its battle to contain the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

“We are cautiously optimistic that Hong Kong is gradually returning to normal from the health crisis,” said Mr LEE.  “I am pleased that we have not stopped our preparation since the postponement.  The prospects of being able to bring back HKIFF44 to our audience are exciting.  Nothing beats the big-screen experience of watching a diverse selection of films from around the world.”

 

Mr LEE said HKIFFS would continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation closely and comply with all recommended measures to ensure public safety and the well-being of festival patrons.      

 

HKIFFS will announce the full HKIFF44 line-up on 28 July.  Tickets will go on sale at all URBTIX outlets and online through www.hkiff.org.hk from 5 August.
