Hong Kong Film Festival is Canceled as Coronavirus Continues to Take Toll
The Hong Kong International Film Festival, set to have taken place in the second half of August, has been canceled.
The festival had previously rescheduled its 44th edition from its usual slot in March, due to the first wave of the coronavirus outbreak. It had set Aug 18-31 Aug. instead.
But, with the city now facing a third wave of the virus, organizers on Friday bowed to the inevitable and announced the cancellation of HKIFF44 and the smaller Cine Fan activities in September and October.
