After the great success of the Hong Kong French Theater Festival’s first three editions in 2016, 2017 and 2018, the charity “Pour un Sourire d’Enfant -PSE” (For A Child’s Smile) is very proud to present the fourth edition aiming to:
- Raise even more funds for Pour Un Sourire d’Enfant (PSE): This amazing charity educates and provides care for more than 7000 of the poorest children in Cambodia. This is why all the troupes will perform for free, and all the profits will go to PSE (thanks to our generous partners and private donors).
-Continue to enhance and to promote “La Francophonie”, during “La Francophonie” month by : Reaching out to a large audience of adults of all nationalities living in Hong Kong, by inviting students from local and international schools to experience a truly “Francophone emotion” while attending performances, meeting actors and attending workshops…
-Offer once again an educational theater experience to students: A jury of students will give an award to the “best play” during the closing ceremony, organize discussions between actors and students after the performances, and organize theater workshops for students throughout the week (9 workshops in 4 different schools).
The Hong Kong French Theater Festival also endeavors to convey its very specific mindset: simplicity, conviviality, open mindedness, and quality!
And to spice up the adventure somewhat, this festival will also have a jury of local professionals (actress, producer, director…) to reward the best performance(s)!
