The 2016 festival theme is Remember
At The Hong Kong Jewish Film Festival we pride ourselves on screening a vast array of films to suit every taste, from features and comedies to dramas and documentaries.
To this end, since the start of the calendar year, our viewing team has watched more than 150 films!
Some had great stories but were not well-made, while others were excellent films with unappealing stories. We have laughed and cried, and at times laughed until we cried!
Some films were enthralling, while others were downright confusing, but overall we have been hugely impressed by the level of international talent, especially from up and coming filmmakers, and we are delighted to share the best of our selection with you.
This year it was impossible to ignore the overwhelming deluge of Holocaust-themed films that came our way, each tackling this difficult and sensitive subject from different angles and with new perspectives.
With such moving, worthy and unmissable films, our theme gradually became evident… We will remember.
Thank you to our viewers and to everyone who has given their support, and a special huge thanks to the board and the viewing committee who have all been so amazing and worked so hard.
Without you all there would be no festival!
Hope to see you all at the movies 🙂
