Hong Kong International Documentary Festival – Call for Entry 2019


The Hong Kong International Documentary Festival is accepting documentaries until May 10th, 2019. Here you can find more information about their call.

The festival is run by Visible Record Limited, a non-profit organization that advocates for the art and culture of documentary film. Other than producing and distributing films, it also organizes film screenings, seminars, training courses, and many other programmes to nurture documentary film talents and enhance appreciation of the film form.

In 2008, Visible Record founded the annual Chinese Documentary Festival (now the Hong Kong International Documentary Festival). It is the world’s first annual film festival to focus on Pan-Chinese documentaries and is an important exchange platform for Pan-Chinese documentaries. The past few Chinese Documentary Festivals have received funding from Lee Hysan Foundation and Hong Kong Art Development Council.
