The Hong Kong French Theater Festival

The Hong Kong French Theater Festival, beyond its strong desire to offer a large public a selection of highly qualitative French plays, performed in French with English subtitles, pursues three main objectives:

 

  • Raise funds to the profit of Pour Un Sourire d’Enfant (PSE), this amazing charity who educates in its schools more than 7, 000 of Cambodian children's in need. This is why all the companies will perform for free, and all the profits (thanks to our generous partners and private donors) will go to PSE;

 

  • Enhance and promote the French language during the month of Francophonie. Reach a public of Hong Kong adults of all nationalities, and invite students from international schools to experience some “Francophone  emotion” by attending some performances as well as by meeting actors and attending workshops;

 

  • Offer an educational experience to students. Set up a jury of students to reward the “best play”  during the closing ceremony, organize discussions between actors and students after the performance. Organize theater workshops for students during the week to answer questions and explain the mechanics of a Theater play (9 workshops in 4 different schools).

 

The Hong Kong French Theater Festival also wants to emphasize its specific mindset: simplicity, conviviality, open mindedness, and quality!

 

And to  spice the adventure up a little bit, this festival will also have a prestigious jury of professionals  rewarding the best performances!
