The London East Asia Film Festival will be back for its 2nd edition this October!

Building from our success in 2016, we will present the latest features by the most prominent directors in the LEAFF OFFICIAL SELECTION, emerging talent of the future through the COMPETITION section, the lives of East Asian women in the STORIES OF WOMEN section and a celebration of a lifetime of works by a legend in filmmaking with a RETROSPECTIVE!

We are thrilled to announce new strands in partnership with Festivals, institutions and filmmakers from East Asia. CREATIVE VISIONS: HONG KONG CINEMA 1997-2017 programme will commemorate 20 years of breathtaking Hong Kong cinema, "fantastic" films will be co-programmed with BIFAN for our FESTIVAL FOCUS, and a SPECIAL HIGHLIGHT SCREENING will surprise all fans of East Asian cinema.

We look forward to seeing you at the largest LEAFF yet!
