The seventh annual Asia House Film Festival, celebrating film from the Asia Pacific region, will be taking place in London from 27 March to 31 March 2015.
Organised by non-profit organisation Asia House and sponsored by Prudential, this year’s festival’s ‘New Generations’ theme reflects on new talents, new styles, new landscapes and new modes of film production from and about the Asia Pacific region, ranging from Cambodia, Myanmar, Vietnam and Indonesian to India, Japan and Uzbekistan, with a special focus and retrospective on Mongolia.
The festival includes a selection of features, documentaries and shorts, including two European premieres, eight UK premieres and one London premiere, alongside a showcase of classic films.
Opening the festival is the European premiere of Indonesian drama In the Absence of the Sun, which is directed and written by Lucky Kuswandi, and the UK premiere of award-winning documentary Yangon Calling – Punk in Myanmar, directed by Alexander Dluzak and Carsten Piefke, will be closing the festival.
Other films to be shown during the festival include Mongolian drama Passion by Byamba Sakhya and Japanese musical documentary Flashback Memories 3D, which received the audience award at the 26th Tokyo International Film Festival.
A full festival programme is available here and the hashtag for the 2015 Asia House Film Festival is #AHFILM15.
