French May Arts Festival is organised by Association Culturelle France – Hong Kong Limited, a non-profit charitable organisation recognised under Section 88 of the Inland Revenue Ordinance. 

Our mission is to promote cultural exchanges between Hong Kong and France. We aim to serve the community by bringing world class performances and artworks to Hong Kong, and making them accessible to a wide audience through numerous outreach and educational initiatives. 

With more than 100 events each year, from exhibitions and performances, to cinema and gastronomy, French May Arts Festival is one of the most diverse cultural events in Asia. We rely exclusively on the generous support of our patrons, sponsors and partners, who are key to making the festival happen and maintaining our year-long operations. 

The contribution of our faithful partners enables us to enhance the quality of our programmes, to nurture the local art scene and to increase accessibility to the arts for the general public.


BNP Paribas has been a proud supporter of the French May Arts Festival since the festival’s inception in 1993. Over the years, the festival has become a highlight of the Asian arts scene contributing to Hong Kong’s diverse cultural heritage, by bringing French and international performers and artists to the local stage. The longevity of our partnership not only shows our commitment to the French May Arts Festival, but also to the wider community through the power of arts and culture.
