It’s that time of year: fresh starts, new plans. We’re delighted to announce that the new dates for the 22nd Festival are 6-12 March 2023!

We are combining our two popular annual festivals, for adults and for young readers, into one exciting March celebration for 2023. This new time embraces our popular annual Young Readers Festival, strengthening the Festival’s mission of supporting Hong Kong’s young readers. March is Hong Kong arts month, the most dynamic cultural moment in the year. As part of the March festivities, the Festival adds to Hong Kong’s status as a leading arts destination.

This will be the first Festival under the direction of our new Executive Director Soo Jung Hyun. She brings an ambitious new vision whilst underscoring HKILF’s longstanding commitment to bringing the best of the world’s writers to Hong Kong.

We thank you for your support of the Festival and look forward to catching up in person soon.
