“Festival de Cannes Film Week” at K11 MUSEA this November, By Adrienne Papp
The Festival de Cannes Film Week will land in Hong Kong and make its Asia debut at pioneering retail destination K11 MUSEA, Victoria Dockside from 12-17 November 2019. An exclusive and intimate moment of cinema, the Festival de Cannes Film Week will present 6 films from the selection of the Festival de Cannes 2019 and invite a few guests to share their experience and work through Q&A and master classes. The Festival de Cannes Film Week is committed to the celebration of creativity, culture and cinema and is set to become the city’s iconic film week.
“The story of Festival de Cannes Film Week began in Buenos Aires almost ten 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. There is no better place to extend this experience than Hong Kong which has seen the origins of so many great filmmakers who have come to show their films in Cannes!”, said Pierre Lescure, President of the Festival, and Thierry Frémaux, its General Delegate.
Adrian Cheng, who believes in the power of creativity, culture and innovation to enrich daily life across businesses and local communities, commented: “I am honoured to welcome Mr. Pierre Lescure and Mr. Thierry Frémaux in debuting the Festival de Cannes Film Week in Hong Kong and Asia. For decades, the 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 the Festival de Cannes Film Week at K11 MUSEA is made possible. This is an important milestone for K11 MUSEA as we look to develop a programme of innovative cultural events for our international audience.
On 12 November, the opening night will kick off the Festival de Cannes Film Week and 6 feature films from the 2019 Festival de Cannes Official Selection will immerse Hong Kong in the spirit of the Festival.
Tickets and further details will be released later in the year.
