Hong Kong Asian Film Festival

If you’re a fan of Asian cinema, then don’t miss out on the Hong Kong Asian Film Festival, which kicks off at the end of October and runs until November.

Now in it’s 16th year, the HKAFF is a great opportunity to see a number of premiers from rising local directors as well as those from neighbouring countries.

Filmmakers from Japan, Taiwan, Cambodia, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan and more have been carefully chosen for this year’s film festival.

This year’s two Opening Films are both by Hong Kong directors, with a local cast. Nick Leung’s production of Lion Rock is the true story of a competitive rock climber who lost everything after a motorcycle accident left him paralysed, but still determined to pursue his passion. The other opening film, Ciao UFO directed by Patrick Leung, is a charming sci-fi comedy about unexplained UFOs appearing in the sky in Aberdeen.

There are also special presentations, Cineaste Delights, and Asian Wide Angle screenings, plus a number of panel discussions.

The films will be shown at seven different cinemas across Hong Kong, including AMC Pacific Place in Admiralty, Palace IFC in Central, Broadway Cinemateque in Kowloon, and Broadway THE ONE in Tsim Sha Tsui.

Don’t speak the language of the film? Not to worry because all screenings have subtitles in English (and Cantonese, if the film’s language is not Cantonese).

You can find the full Film Programme on the HKAFF website, and to purchase a ticket, click on the film you want to see, and follow the link to the purchase page.
