Film Fest internation will lauch a new Asian film festival brand in London, Rome, Berlin, Nice and Madrid.

Fantastic Asia International Film Festival is brought to you by Shanghai-born internationally acclaimed novelist Mian Mian and her team in collaboration with FFI.

Global in outlook, Fantastic Asia is committed to unearthing open-minded filmmakers who cut through conceptual frameworks, paradigms and dichotomies.

In particular, we look for the kind of film that can be a chaotic, heartfelt entry point into the madness of human indulgence. But its reward is the promise of unexpected wonders and moments of true grace in the world.

With a soft spot for Asian filmmakers worldwile, Asian cities, Asian stories, sci-fi narratives driven by Asian philosophies, and bringing ancient Asian heritage on to the screen.

FAFFI plans to first establish teams in some Asian regions where artists gather, such as Dali, Chiang Mai, Kyoto, etc.

FAIFF is starting 2022 with two thematic awards. Under the “Fantastic Asia” umbrella a number of  awards are on offer for feature films, short films (ultra-shorts), documentaries, music videos and more……

The festival will also confer a major new award: the Auteur Award, which aims to stimulate discussion of the complexities and nuances of auteur film in the present day.

The FAIFF program will be rounded off with a series of Asian Film Markets, special screenings of Asian films, and more.
