HKIFF Industry - CAA China Genre Initiative

To foster Chinese-language genre projects, the first Hong Kong International Film Festival Society and CAA China‘s joint initiative, entitled HCG - short for HKIFF Industry - CAA China Genre Initiative, will showcase five shortlisted genre projects to an industry-wide audience during the 28th Hong Kong International Film & TV Market (FILMART) alongside the 22nd Hong Kong - Asia Film Financing Forum (HAF22), scheduled from 11 - 13 March 2024. 

As part of the programme, CAA China will fund cash US$20,000 each to two handpicked projects to support their development, with customised guidance from mentors. CAA China may board the winning projects later by entering into script development agreements.

HCG is calling for entry now, the submission deadline will be on 31 October 2023.
