Actor Aaron Kwok reprises his role as HKIFF44’s Festival Ambassador

The Hong Kong International Film Festival which was postponed due to the COVID19 pandemic today announced that the 44th edition of the festival (HKIFF44) will now take place from August 18-30, 2020.

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.
