We’re coming out… into the community!

Beyond our annual festival screenings, HKLGFF supports the community throughout the year with our outreach programme, “We are GAYbours”. Since 2019, we have connected with a wider audience all over Hong Kong with special neighbourhood screenings of short films and sharing sessions with LGBTQIA+ members. 

“We are GAYBours” focuses on community spaces in neighbourhoods beyond where our cinemas are located. In fact, we have held seven sessions at galleries, bookstores and hostels in Sham Shui Po, To Kwa Wan and Kwun Tong. 

We would love to see this programme grow further and expand deeper into the community. Through “We are GAYbours”, we have been able to reach progressive non-LGBTQIA+ spaces, who have welcomed our programme. With their support, we have engaged with new audiences who were able to learn about LGBTQIA+ issues as well as discover more great films at our film festival. 

If you know of any community spaces, or have any ideas, suggestions or connections that could support our mission, please email us at community@hklgff.hk.

Special thanks to all our guest speakers and the films we have screened, and to the community venues in particular for their outstanding support of our programme.
