The Festival de Cannes Film Week brings the prestigious film festival, the Cannes Film Festival nearer to home in Hong Kong this November. The week-long festival had previously only taken place in Latin America.

From 12th to the 17th of November 2019, the retail destination K11 MUSEA at Victoria Dockside will be turned into a celebration of creativity, culture and cinema where 6 films from the selection of the Festival de Cannes 2019 will be screened, along with various Q&A sessions with invited industry professionals. Those attending Festival de Cannes Film Week can also expect guest appearances from directors and actors from around the world, as well as masterclasses hosted by some of cinema’s brightest lights.

“The story of Festival de Cannes Film Week began in Buenos Aires almost ten years ago with the idea of taking the spirit of the Festival on a global journey, thereby continuing the dialogue with people from all over the world who visit us in Cannes every year in May and creating a cinema moment with a unique format. At the Festival de Cannes we invite the whole world to come to Cannes to celebrate the art of filmmaking, to discover the latest works of great contemporary directors and to get a taste for what is up and coming in the world of cinema. With our Festival de Cannes Film Week, we hope to initiate the very opposite by taking to the road and bringing the spirit of the Festival and the work of artists to other parts of the globe. There is no better place to extend this experience than Hong Kong which has seen the origins of so many great filmmakers who have come to show their films in Cannes!”, said Pierre Lescure, President of Festival de Cannes, and Thierry Frémaux, General Delegate of Festival de Cannes.

Ticketing information and further details will be released later in the year.
