Special Film Shows

From silent movie in the early years to 3D digital movies today, Hong Kong cinema has continued to change over the course of a century. Film itself is a culture carrier that bears witness to all the changes in society, the people, local culture and the historical development. It is a gateway to a vast wealth of invaluable knowledge about Hong Kong now and then. Hong Kong Film Archive has selected some ten local titles, each uniquely different from the others, for group viewing.


All Hong Kong primary schools, secondary schools, special schools, post-secondary institutions, universities, local-registered charities and non-profit-making organisations serving senior citizens and the disabled are eligible to apply. Organisations serving the hearing-impaired are welcome to use the Induction Loop System of the cinema. In the case of registered charitable organizations and non-profit-making organizations, applicants should submit copies of supporting documents identifying the charitable or non-profit-making nature of the organization. (Constitution or Memorandum and Articles of Association of the organization, which indicates that members do not take any share of the profits nor any share of the assets upon dissolution, should be submitted together with this application form.)

Ticket charge and quota

The charge for each ticket is $11. Any applying organization must at least purchase 40 tickets but no more than 125 tickets per special screening. Staff of the applying organization should also buy tickets for admission.
