Aperture: Asia & Pacific Film Festival is a new UK-wide project dedicated to screening some of the boldest, most daring, challenging and striking films from the Asian and Pacific regions. The festival focuses particularly on underrepresented cinemas, from Azerbaijan to Vanuatu and everything in between.
The festival opens in Glasgow on 25 March and will tour across the UK in Spring and Summer before coming to London in June.
We’ll also be hosting a symposium in London at the end of June, jointly presented with University of Westminster.
We’re excited to announce our first three screenings, taking place at the end of March at CCA: Centre for Contemporary Arts in Glasgow – 3 films from Singapore, Thailand and the Philippines, including two titles by female filmmakers:
THE ISLAND FUNERAL (Pimpaka Towira, Thailand)
IN TIME TO COME (Tan Pin Pin, Singapore)
PEOPLE POWER BOMBSHELL: THE DIARY OF VIETNAM ROSE (John Torres, Philippines)
