About HKAFF 2021
Broadway Cinematheque will present the 18th edition of the Hong Kong Asian Film Festival (HKAFF) from 27 October to 14 November, 2021. The theme of the festival this year is “Emancipation in variations”. From its festival ambassadors to its lineup, the festival aims to unshackle audiences from their locked-down perspectives of things are, and free their long-quarantined imagination into action. We see verse in diversity, and in rule-breakers we trust.
In line with that, our visual design sets out to subvert long-held perceptions of the world, and to tease out new meanings from ordinary objects – a metaphor of how the festival seeks to transcend boundaries with its very varied programme. Let’s not be square: leave your preconceptions at the door and join us for a journey you can’t refuse!
