NEW ASIA & PACIFIC FILM FESTIVAL TOURING THE UK IN SUMMER/AUTUMN 2018
Aperture: Asia & Pacific Film Festival is a new UK-wide film festival dedicated to screening some of the boldest, most daring, challenging, and striking films from Asia and the Pacific. Focusing particularly on underrepresented cinemas, from Azerbaijan to Vanuatu and everything in between, the festival aims to open windows on worlds whose landscapes and peoples remain largely absent from UK screens. Aperture is the only festival in the UK currently with a remit that specifically covers the whole of Asia and the Pacific.
The festival is co-founded and co-directed by Sonali Joshi and Jasper Sharp. Presented in partnership with CREAM, University of Westminster, the festival is supported by Purin Pictures.
Aperture/London Part 2 will take place in mid-September, comprising a Southeast Asian focus and a one-day symposium hosted by CREAM, University of Westminster.
Aperture is jointly presenting some events with other festivals, including GemArts Masala Festival in July and Chinese Visual Festival in September.
