In 2022, the Asian Film Awards Academy held a series of exciting events to promote Asian films and cultural exchanges, allowing us to reflect on the special moments of 2022.


This year’s two-session film technology workshop kicked off. We were honored to have Romanian New Wave director Radu Jude and guest Avi Mograbi to share their understanding of cinema and the difficulties of making films in a volatile environment. Radu Jude also sent a message to students to do more searching, accumulate life experience, and understand different cultures to make unexpected films.

Film Craft Workshops

In February, the Master Class Series was held for the first time in Singapore. The event was honored to invite Ms. Cheung Wanting, a famous Hong Kong director, to have an in-depth conversation with the local audience, and Singapore’s outstanding filmmaker Lai Kit-Sang was the host.


From May to October this year, “Asian Film Tour Screenings” were held in Hong Kong, Malaysia, and Indonesia. The touring screening aims to expand the audience of Asian films, expand the Asian film market, promote the development of the film industry, promote multicultural and exchange activities, and jointly promote the best Asian film works. The audience responded enthusiastically, and tickets for many sessions sold out quickly.

In addition to the local training programme, we also partnered with Thai post-production company White Light Post for the third time to provide a three-month internship in the color-grading department in Bangkok.
