About Us

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

The Hong Kong International Literary Festival (HKILF), founded in 2001, is an annual event held over ten days in autumn, featuring established and emerging writers from around the world in a programme that includes discussions, literary lunches and dinners, workshops, lectures, debates, book signings, and readings.

The stellar list of past HKILF authors includes literary luminaries such as Seamus Heaney, Louis de Bernières, Colm Tóibín, Jung Chang, and Yann Martel.

HKILF is organized and coordinated by Hong Kong International Literary Festival Limited, a non-profit, charitable literary arts organization which also manages the annual Young Readers Festival (YRF).

關於香港國際文學節

香港國際文學節(HKILF)始於2001年。為了讓全世界已成名和嶄露頭角的作家與讀者見面, 一年一度的文學節將在秋季舉辦為期十日的活動,包括討論會、文學餐宴、工作坊、演講、辯論會、簽名和讀書會。

歷屆文學節星光璀璨,邀請到了諸如Seamus Heaney, Louis de Bernières, Colm Tóibín, 張戎和Yann Martel等知名作者。

香港國際文學節由同名有限公司管理和籌備。這是一個非牟利的慈善文學藝術組織,也會在春季舉辦一年一度的香港國際青少年讀者節(YRF)。

OUR VISION

HKILF brings writers and book lovers together at events that allow them to share ideas.

Hong Kong is uniquely positioned to attract not just the best authors and thinkers in Asia, but globally. The city that built itself on the exchange of goods, is now also the region’s focal point for the exchange of ideas.

Literature makes us think, it gives us new perspectives. HKILF starts conversations that build a better society.

我們的願景

香港國際文學節讓作家和書蟲聚集在一起分享、交流想法。

香港是一個具有獨特地理位置的城市,吸引了亞洲乃至來自全球的書寫者和思考者。貿易開啓了這個城市的歷史,但想法的交流讓她成為地區性的文化聚焦點。

文學給予我們新的角度去思考。香港國際文學節將促成更多交流,為社會作出貢獻。
