Sundance Film Festival Hong Kong

HK$90.00 (advance sales)

Film buffs are in for a treat in September, with the sixth edition of the Sundance Film Festival Hong Kong set to take the stage later this month.

Highlights

There are a dozen acclaimed movies being showcased in the 2019 Hong Kong lineup of independent films, with Honey Boy starring Shia LeBeouf set for the opening film on September 19.

Other highly anticipated screenings are Clemency, starring Alfre Woodard, which won the U.S. Grand Jury Prize: Dramatic award, and The Last Black Man in San Francisco, starring Danny Glover and a star-studded cast, who helped the film win the Directing Award: U.S. Dramatic award.

An important part of the film festival is the Hong Kong Short Film Competition, as viewers will be able to watch the winning shorts from local Hong Kong filmmakers, selected by Sundance.

In addition to the film screenings, there are a series of workshops, seminars, panel discussions, a Virtual Reality Experience, and a Dolby Masters Class. And after certain screenings, the film makers will attend a Q&A session for the audience.

Venue and event details

All films will be shown at The Metroplex, a nine-screen, state-of-the-art multiplex in Eastern Kowloon. The Metroplex is a self-operated independent cinema, dedicated to the latest original and diverse independent voices in the film industry.

The Sundance Film Festival Hong Kong runs from September 19 through to October 1, giving film enthusiasts many opportunities to attend.

You can view the full schedule on the Sundance website, and tickets are available online from The Metroplex box office website (links below).

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
