Festival Director



“The London East Asia Film Festival aims to introduce the diversity of East Asian culture through film.

We want to engage with a wider audience through our inclusive, cross-cultural programming.

Showing films from all over East Asia will allow those interested in the region to understand the distinction and nuanced individuality between different countries within East Asia.

We hope to show the growing collaboration between national film industries and highlight the strength of contemporary Asian filmmaking on the world stage.

I invite you all to enjoy our eclectic mix of films, participate in workshops and seminars, visit our exhibitions and even meet your favourite directors and actors.


Open your eyes to something new, and take a leap with LEAFF!
