The《Hong Kong Contemporary Film Festival》is a 3-night festival in New York, presenting films and video art pieces that address Hong Kong’s current socio-political struggles and search for identity. Together with local and overseas collaborators, we create an intergenerational and transnational dialogue to challenge dated conceptions of Hong Kong cinema. Along with a live-streamed panel discussion in Hong Kong and an opening night of free Cantonese cuisine and retro canto-pop music, we invite both communities of the two shores to re-examine Hong Kong’s current cultural climate and creative voice.
