CinemAsia Film Festival
CinemAsia Film Festival is the only pan-Asian festival in the Netherlands and one of the largest Asian film festivals in Europe!
Dutch-Asian excellence in filmmaking
CinemAsia Film Festival in Amsterdam gathers together a delightful selection of the best independent, mainstream and art-house Asian films, with the aim of bringing out valuable insights from Asian culture and uniting Dutch-Asian communities by shared excellence in filmmaking. CinemAsia has also collaborated with other festivals such as Pink Film Days, Amsterdam Indonesian Film Week, and Indian Film Festival in The Hague.
Besides films from China, Cambodia, India, Japan, Korea, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and other Southeast and East Asian countries, the festival offers food, karaoke, panels, exhibitions, a bazaar and more to ensure a fun and fulfilling experience for everyone!
For the prestigious jury award, festival competition nominees will compete for the titles of Best Film, Best Director and Best Performer. The jury consists of many pre-eminent names in the industry.
Additionally, there is the Audience Award, giving the audience the opportunity to vote for their favourite film, and students are invited to assess the films of first-time directors, which will be given the Student Award for Best Film, to be screened on the CinemAsia On Tour.
