The 21 International Film Festival celebrates the art of film-making, helps support a community of artists and showcases Hong Kong as an entertainment and travel destination. The festival supports and nurtures emerging independent filmmakers and their stories from around the world not currently found in mainstream Hong Kong cinema.

The festival will screen narratives, documentaries, animation and music videos. No matter the subject, if the work has merit and the filming is well done – we are interested in viewing it. The festival is looking for all genres of narratives from comedy to drama and from thrillers to love stories. Your film will be viewed by our local audiences and will be judged by a jury of film professionals and a community of cinephiles.
