Activity

The Alliance Française de Hong Kong (AFHK) offers an extensive range of French language classes from children to adults, including tailor-made courses for corporate needs. In 2014, the AFHK registered more than 6,000 different students in its three centres.

The AFHK is also very active in organising or supporting cultural events. Its programme reflects its main missions and values: cultural encounters and exchanges, accessibility and conviviality with a constant commitment in supporting artistic creation and innovation between HK and France. It features cinema, performing arts, visual arts, conferences…

For its partners, it is a guarantee to benefit a long-term visibility by getting involved in valuable and high-end cultural events with a non-profit making local organization, faithful to its values since its inception in HK, 62 years ago.

Among this programme, the 2 main events are:
- the Hong Kong French Film Festival (French Cinepanorama) which presents a selection of more than 50 recent and award winning French films for 9 000 spectators during 3 weeks every year in November and December.
- Le French May, co-founded by the AFHK with the Consulate General of France in 1993, is today one of the major arts festival in Hong Kong in which the AFHK is still highly involved.

In order to contribute to the cultural exchanges between HK and France, the AFHK has published since 1972 PAROLES (in Chinese and French) the longest-running cultural magazine in HK.
