About

History & Board

The HKJFF is Asia’s flagship Jewish Festival featuring the best Jewish-themed films from around the world.

 

Founded in 2000, the Festival has screened hundreds of features, documentaries and short films from over 30 countries, hosting directors, producers, critics and curators.

The Festival runs for two weeks showcasing a wide range of feature films, documentaries and shorts, which reflect and offer interesting and unique views into the diversity of Jewish and Israeli life and culture.

We are fortunate  to receive local support from foreign consulates, cultural offices and chambers of commerce in Hong Kong as well as a wide range of film lovers who come to the Festival.

Our mission is to celebrate, educate, enlighten and entertain through movies and bring Jewish culture to this corner of Asia.

 

We look forward to sharing this year’s excellent selection of films with you!

All members of our Board and viewing committee are volunteers with a passion for films.
