Asia House Film Festival 2016
22nd February – 5th March
2016 is a special year for Asia House, as they celebrate their 20th anniversary in style with the return of their annual Asia House Film Festival.
Now in it’s eighth year, the Asia House Film Festival returns with a strong line-up, showcasing a total of 14 feature-length films and five shorts providing a glimpse into life across Asia.
Taking place from the 22nd February to 5th March, the festival kicks off in style at the Ham Yard Hotel for the 2016 Opening Night Gala, screening two films that show off the venue’s state-of-the-art facilities.
An ultra high-definition 4K projection of French filmmaker Marc Johnson’s YúYú (2014) will precede Kazakhstan’s official submission for the Best Foreign-Language Film category at the 2016 year Oscars, Stranger (Zhat) (2015), which showcases the very latest revolution in cinema sound technology, Dolby Atmos.
The film’s director, Yermek Tursunov, represents, for us, one of the most exciting discoveries of the past few years. And we’re delighted to discover that he will be introducing his stunningly shot wilderness epic, as well as his second film, the gripping action thriller Little Brother (Kenzhe) (2015), also being shown at the festival.
To close the festival, the Asia House team return back to the Cinema Museum to celebrate Singaporeana Day with a showcase of British and American films which pay homage to Singapore.
