The only festival of its kind in the UK, the Asia House Pan-Asia Film Festival offers UK audiences the chance to experience all the beauty, variety and dynamism of Asian cinema. The festival screens dynamic and challenging cinema from all over the region – from Iran to Japan – in London cinemas and at selected regional satellite cities throughout the country.
Previous editions of the festival have premiered films including the Vietnamese-born Academy Award nominee Tran Anh Hung's Norwegian Wood and Indian film director Mira Nair's The Namesake and Reluctant Fundamentalist. Insightful Q&A sessions with directors, actors and producers have reinforced the festival’s reputation for building audience’s understanding of Asian cinema.
The programming focuses on showing UK premieres from established British Asian directors as well as introducing fresh filmmaking talent to audiences for the first time.
