The 1st London East Asia Film Festival 2016 finally comes to an end. During the 11-day festival, 40 films from South Korea, Japan, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines, and Singapore were shown in cinemas across London, including 20 UK/European premieres. The festival succeeded to attract 1,300 audience members solely for the Opening Gala and five of our screenings and events were sold out. The festival also attracted wide media coverage including BBC, UK Chinese Times, Chinanews, Yonhap, Sino, and China Daily.
Without your generous contribution and support, our dreams and vision for the festival would have never come to reality. Words are inadequate to express how thankful I am. I believe the best way for me to show my gratitude and appreciation is to continue bringing the diversity and energy of East Asian cinemas to London. Hopefully, LEAFF will bring you more excitement, variety, and inspiration in 2017.
Please continue to support us in the future! Look forward to seeing you next year!
