The sixth Terracotta Far East Film Festival (TFEFF) will be held in two central London venues over ten days from Friday 23 May to Sunday 1 June.The festival is one of the UK’s biggest showcases for contemporary Asian cinema, boasting an electrifying mix of movies from emerging and established artists across a range of genres.This is the second year the festival will run on a two-venue, ten-day format, indicating the growing success of the event as a must-visit for both hardcore fans and more casual cinema-goers to catch some of the most exciting films coming out of Asia today.KLM are the Official Airline Partner for the fourth year, while What is Bobo are the official design sponsors of the Terracotta Film Festival, also for the fourth consecutive year, creating the festival branding, on-screen identity and all of its promotional material.
This year, the festival will kick off with the "SPOTLIGHT ON" section at the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) between Friday 23 and Tuesday 27 May. The section will focus on the Philippines where a new generation of independent film-makers are producing fresh and increasingly critically acclaimed content.
The festival will then relocate to Prince Charles Cinema in the heart of Chinatown fromWednesday 28 May until Sunday 1 June for its usual sections: CURRENT ASIAN CINEMA will once more be a premiere-packed platform for contemporary films from the region.
And the fast-becoming-cult TERROR COTTA HORROR ALL-NIGHTER will be back too, serving up a marathon of ghosts, zombies, demons and cold-blooded killers.
