Films & Drama


Film festivals

The choice of films available in Hong Kong is wide. You will find a large variety of comedy, horror, sci-fi and romantic movies at many mainstream cinemas in town. But you may also be interested in checking out some non-mainstream films.

LCSD's Film Programme Office and the Hong Kong Arts Centre regularly launch film festivals with various themes throughout the year. The films at these festivals may not be as obscure as some people believe. In fact, some very popular movies were actually premiered in film festivals in Hong Kong.
