Offscreen Film Festival presents unconventional Hong Kong films - 9-27 March 2022

With the support of the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office in Brussels and Create Hong Kong, the Offscreen Film Festival in Brussels, which specialises in cult films, is presenting a special programme of 18 Hong Kong films under the title "Hors Catégorie". 

In addition to some all-time classics, the focus will be on films that were awarded a Category III classification.  They challenged a whole range of societal norms and quickly gained a reputation as cult films.

 

"Under the heading 'Hors Catégorie', we focus on Hong Kong cinema outside of the mainstream, with a selection of 18 unconventional, extraordinary, pioneering and even demented genre offerings attesting to a vibrant, audacious and visceral film culture." - Offscreen

Hors Catégorie programme

 

Offscreen will also hold an international conference on Hong Kong Category III films.   

Experts taking part will be French critic, Julien Sévéon; Dr Calum Waddell of the University of Lincoln; and Dr Victor Fan of King’s College, London.  The conference, held in English, will conclude with the documentary "Category III: The Untold Story of Hong Kong Exploitation Cinema" by Calum Waddell.  Entry is free but online reservation is required.
