@New York Asian Film Festival

The most important and largest showcase for contemporary Asian cinema in America, the 20th New York Asian Film Festival kicks off today with in-person screenings held at both SVA Theater and Film At Lincoln Center, and also available nationwide thru its Virtual Cinema portal. The Opening Night Selection is the action packed thriller “Escape from Mogadishu”. The film stars Kim Yoon-seok and is based in real facts set during the Somali Civil War. NYAFF 2021 features a varied selection of smart gems and genres, produced all over Asia, representing countries such as China, Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand, and others. For the first time, the Festival will screen American productions with focus on the Asian community and culture, including the much awaited crime thriller “Snakeheads” about an immigrant navigating the crime world in NYC’s Chinatown. Parallel events, such as filmmakers’ talks and a special Outdoor Screening will also provide the brilliance of Asian cinema. INFO:
