A short film is an art form in itself! To celebrate this medium, HKLGFF will once again be presenting the Jury Award to the very best short amongst this year’s selections. Book tickets to watch the short programs and see if you can spot the winner!

As in previous years, we have a diverse group of Jury members who come from different sectors of the film and theater world, and we are honoured to have them at HKLGFF this year.
