February 08, 2023
The Hong Kong International Film Festival (HKIFF) returns this year from Mar. 30 to Apr. 10, screening some of our favourite Hong Kong and international feature films and documentaries.
As one of the largest film festivals in Asia, the HKIFF is an important event in Hong Kong’s cultural calendar.
Each year, the HKIFF secures a notable line-up of new, noteworthy, and historically influential films, showing more than 200 films from 60 countries, a few of which have won acclaim in their home country and abroad.
Organizers of the events announced that actor Aaron Kwok will be the festival ambassador for the fourth consecutive year, opening the festival with a film he stars in, ‘Where The Wind Blows’.
Some notable films showing this year include; the ‘Infernal Affairs’ trilogy, ‘Better Days’ and Oscar-nominated documentary ‘All That Breathes’.
The films are shown in venues all across Hong Kong, including PREMIERE Elements in Kowloon, Hong Kong Arts Centre Louis Koo Cinema in Wan Chai, Emperor Cinemas in both Tsim Sha Tsui and Causeway Bay, and M+ Cinema in Tsim Sha Tsui.
Ticket prices vary depending on the film; with weekly matinee tickets going for as low as HK$55, while students and seniors may purchase tickets for HK$28. Discounted ticket packages can be made available depending on how many tickets are bought.
Sold out screenings may have a small number of stand-by tickets on sale, 30 minutes prior to the film showing. For more information on ticketing and showings, click here.
