New Asian Cinema
Like every year the competition section presents challenging, daring films, boldly combining genre cinema with social sensibility.
A cross-section of the cinematographies of East and Southeast Asia: from India and Vietnam to Bhutan and Taiwan. The films cover local themes and topics widely discussed around the world, as well as touching personal and family stories.
The Grand Prix will be awarded by People’s Jury – a group of amateurs and semi-professionals whose sincere love of cinema and Asia combined with advanced journalistic skills will allow them to make competent assessment of the competition films and choose the winner of the Festival.
