Terracotta Far East Film Festival (TFEFF) will be taking a break in 2015, to allow us to develop the exciting new projects that we have planned for the rest of the year and for 2016.
Our dedicated team will take this opportunity to grow and expand the scope of the event, so that we can aim for greater impact in London’s crowded event calendar. The film festival landscape has changed considerably over the last few years and our focus will be on creating a revitalised, cutting edge platform for Asian films in the UK.
The first Terracotta Far East Film Festival took place in 2009 and has since become the biggest event for Asian cinema in London. Six years on, we have successfully produced seven Asian film casino online festivals, including ‘Hong Kong 15’ in 2012, celebrating the 15th anniversary of Hong Kong”s return to Chinese sovereignty. We have flown in actors, directors and producers from China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, the Philippines and South Korea, showcasing both emerging and existing talent, complimented by some fascinating Q&As and masterclasses.
While the climate for world cinema and independent films is increasingly tough, the growth of the festival highlights the exceptional output from this diverse region and continued audience desire to see these films in the UK.
Festival Director, Joey Leung says: “This doesn”t mean we have completely disappeared for 2015; Terracotta will participate in various events around the country, throughout the year and 2016 will see a dramatically different Terracotta, one that promises to deliver uncompromising excellence in Asian cinema – we look forward to seeing you there with us.”
