Asian Film Awards Academy Presents

Asian Cinerama Roadshow at Hong Kong Asian Film Festival 2019


22 October 2019 (Tuesday) HONG KONG: The Asian Film Awards Academy (AFAA) is working again with Hong Kong Asian Film Festival (HKAFF) again this year to present AFAA’s flagship film roadshow – Asian Cinerama (the programme). Financially supported by Create Hong Kong and the Film Development Fund of the Hong Kong SAR Government, Asian Cinerama will take place in five cinemas, including Palace ifc, Broadway Cinematheque, Broadway THE ONE, MOViE MOViE Cityplaza and PREMIERE ELEMENTS from 1 to 16 November.


The programme will open with No Longer Human, directed by Japanese Director Ninagawa Mika, a neo-noir mystery-drama told intriguingly in reverse; and close with The Garden of Evening Mists by Taiwanese director Tom Lin (Starry Starry Night, Zinnia Flower) adapts Malaysian writer Tan Twan Eng’s Man Booker Prize-nominated novel into this elegant, star-studded drama about memory, loss and the art of gardening.


Other outstanding Asian films that will showcase at the programme include: Kim Ji-young, Born 1982 which based on a bestselling novel of the same name, describes how Korean woman face gender discrimination while juggling work and family; They Say Nothing Stays the Same by first time director Odagiri Joe, talks about the story of a boatman and a decision encounter starts to bring about changes to his life; SANJU, the highest-grossing Bollywood movie in 2018, based on Sanjay Dutt’s tumultuous life was directed by 3 Idiots director Rajkumar Hirani.
