The Hong Kong International Film Festival Association yesterday announced that due to how severe the pandemic has been, the government would extend the social distancing pandemic prevention measures like shutting down cinemas and public entertainment venues to April 20th. Thus the 46th Hong Kong International Film Festival that was originally scheduled for March 31st to April 11th would be postponed.
The association pointed out that it is studying various viable solutions and planning to bring back this year's film festival at an appropriate time. The already cancelled Cinefan program would also return once cinemas would open up again.
