Our film festival enjoys the strong support of local and international movie fans alike. We will continually import tastes of the international art movie scene for the enjoyment of local cinephiles, while also tirelessly supporting creative projects from our local directors too.
Through the hosting of a diverse range of film festival in HK, local fans can not only experience the artistic styles of foreign markets, but also those from different interest groups too. This undoubtedly helps broaden their own minds and tastes, while helping establish an international perspective. Local fans or movie-lovers can also have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the culture, history, heritage and works from many international regions around the globe. What’s more, fans can also familiarise themselves with the works of directors from different backgrounds, or those who are associated with a particular time period through attending our exciting film festivals in Hong Kong.
Broadway Cinematheque (bc) also helps cultivate the local Hong Kong film culture through a series of film and culture-related activities. We offer a mouth-watering series of director retrospectives, thematic film programs, and also meet-the-director sessions to take fans behind the scenes and deep into the world of filmmaking. This is to help fans better understand the creative process of filmmaking, and not mention, the artistic works of film casts and crews. These sessions and initiatives undoubtedly help in establishing a two-way process for exchanging creative ideas, and are essential in cultivating and furthering our local film culture in Hong Kong.
