The Festival de Cannes Film Week will land in Hong Kong later this year and make its Asia debut at the retail destination K11 Musea on the Victoria Dockside from November 12 to 17.
The event will present six films from the selection of the Festival de Cannes 2019 and invite a few select industry professionals to introduce their work and practices through a series of Q&As and masterclasses.
“The Festival de Cannes Film Week began in Buenos Aires almost 10 years ago with the idea of taking the spirit of the Festival on a global journey, thereby continuing the dialogue with people from all over the world who visit us in Cannes every year in May and creating a cinema moment with a unique format. At the Festival de Cannes we invite the whole world to come to Cannes to celebrate the art of filmmaking, to discover the latest works of great contemporary directors and to get a taste for what is up and coming in the world of cinema. With our Festival de Cannes Film Week, we hope to initiate the very opposite by taking to the road and bringing the spirit of the Festival and the work of artists to other parts of the globe,” said Pierre Lescure, president of the Festival.
Adrian Cheng, founder of K11 Group and executive vice-chairman of New World Development, believes in the power of creativity, culture and innovation to enrich daily life across businesses and local communities.
“For decades, Festival de Cannes has been synonymous with culture and creativity, and through them, it has grown to become the landmark festival that brings together the very best creative powers of cinematography. It is through our aligned vision to bring world-class curated content to a global audience that Festival de Cannes Film Week at K11 Musea is made possible. This is an important milestone for K11 Musea as we look to develop an ongoing programme of innovative cultural events for our international audience.”
