The 46th Hong Kong International Film Festival (HKIFF46) offers the public an early taste of this year’s extravaganza, with two exhibitions started on 13 August. The exhibitions will be held daily at Harbour City in Tsim Sha Tsui until 28 August 2022 between 1100 and 2100. Admission is free.
The first exhibition showcases behind-the-scenes and film stills by four renowned unit photographers – Jupiter WONG, WONG Wai-lun, Quist TSANG, and Sharon Salad – at the Ocean Terminal Main Concourse. Co-presented by Create Hong Kong with HKIFF46 as a part of the Making Waves – Navigators of Hong Kong Cinema global touring film programme to mark the 25th anniversary of HKSAR’s establishment, the exhibition was officially opened by Mr Victor TSANG, the Head of Create Hong Kong, with three of the photographers in attendance. A complimentary set of four collectable postcards is available to attendees while stock lasts.
The second exhibition is dedicated exclusively to HKIFF46’s Filmmaker-in-Focus, Sandra Ng, with a selection of her film stills, posters, and personal trophies on display at Gallery by the Harbour. Joining Ng to officially open the exhibition today were HKIFFS Executive Director Albert LEE, Director of Programming Geoffrey WONG and Curator Alvin TSE.
Taking place this year from 15 to 31 August for 17 days, HKIFF46 will go hybrid, featuring screenings, exhibitions, and audience-engagement events in theatres and online. The complete programme and screening schedule are available at HKIFF’s official website (www.hkiff.org.hk).
