Hong Kong World Film Festival is an international contest that presents a carefully curated program with international films, narrative, documentary, and short films from established and emerging filmmakers… Our community is passionate about film, and HKWFF always strives to create a relaxed environment where filmmakers and audiences can truly connect.

HKWFF celebrates the best that cinema has to offer. Showcasing films from established masters and emerging storytellers, the Festival welcomes films from around the world. Offering an impressive selection of competitive and non-competitive programming.
For decades, Hong Kong was the third largest motion picture industry in the world and the second-largest exporter. HKWFF is a place for audiences and filmmakers to engage with one another.

Filmmakers are at the heart of everything we do. When you share your film with us, you will be treated with respect throughout every stage of the submission process. Your emails will be returned, your questions answered and a real, live person will answer you.
