About Jockey Club ifva Everywhere

The city is the cinema

A century ago, when films were not yet shown in the cinema, people gathered on the street for the plays of light and shadow. Nowadays, moving images not only exist on screen but also on televisions, and even 4-inch portable screens. In a city of omnipresent images, you are invited to join us to discover some even more extraordinary film viewing experiences.

Organised by the Hong Kong Arts Centre and funded by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, Jockey Club ifva Everywhere will bring you a series of exciting events, covering short films, videos, animations and media arts. Come and delve into the world of moving images, and explore boundless viewing experiences that build up the independent spirit and creative communities.
