Next year’s event will take place from 13-15 March at the Hong KongConvention and Exhibition Centre.

HAF now invites submissions of fiction and documentary feature length projects. The submission deadline is 21 October 2016.Selected projects will be invited to participate in the film financing forum activities in Hong Kong and will also stand to compete for awards with a total value of approximately HK$600,000 (approximately US$78,000). An early bird discount is offered to projects submitted on or before 19 September 2016.

All submissions can opt to be listed in the “HAF Project Hub”, an initiative that started in 2015. This official online repository and reference library serves as a bridge between filmmakers and potential investors.

The HAF Project Hub aims at increasing exposure for film projects while adding value and longevity to HAF submissions.
