French Cinema: Celebration of the Arts

  • Monday May 15, 2017 - Tuesday May 30, 2017

Le French May Arts Festival, Alliance Française de Hong Kong and the Consulate General of France in Hong Kong & Macau are excited to invite you on an artistic journey through French cinema, with a special spotlight on the Celebration of the Arts.

Celebration of the Arts pays tribute to Masters and unknown artists as well as philanthropists and anonymous others whose life would be nothing without the Arts.

The 2017 selection of films brings the lives of those great masters on the silver screen: Renoir, Van Gogh, Séraphine, Modigliani... Audiences are invited to rediscover these extraordinary artists with a new light, through their love and success stories as well as their utmost pains and doubts. 

Celebration of the Arts is an ode to the Arts which overwhelms our life and offers an escape from conformism and stereotypes.

Celebration of the Arts gathers the great figures of French Cinema: Gérard Depardieu, Isabelle Huppert, Gérard Philippe, Anouk Aimé, Jean-Pierre Léaud. 

This selection would not be possible without the contribution of our ambassador Karena Lam, who handpicked iconic French movies that have influenced her bold career.

Ticketing start: 19th of April.
