2023 CiLENS x CathayPlay Indie Chinese Cinema Week Special Online Version Moving across the Boundaries

We are excited to announce that ICCW Special Online Version is now live!

🎥 will continue this cinematic journey and stives to engage a wider audience beyond the geographical limits – A unique online version will be presented in collab with @Cathayplayglobal from November 20 to December 20. You will see three feature films and seven short films from the two editions of ICCW and our past “New Women, New Narrative” program.

🌟We hope that the audience will be able to see a part of the lives of the “Other”, experience the emotional ripples, and investigate the social issues and historical context explored in those films. Moreover, the ZOOM video recording of the 2023 ICCW panel discussion “Authenticity Unframed: Navigating the Real and Reel in Chinese Indie Cinema” will be exclusively available on CathayPlay.

About the author

Panos Kotzathanasis

My name is Panos Kotzathanasis and I am Greek. Being a fan of Asian cinema and especially of Chinese kung fu and Japanese samurai movies since I was a little kid, I cultivated that love during my adolescence, to extend to the whole of SE Asia.

Starting from my own blog in Greek, I then moved on to write for some of the major publications in Greece, and in a number of websites dealing with (Asian) cinema, such as Taste of Cinema, Hancinema, EasternKicks, Chinese Policy Institute, and of course, Asian Movie Pulse. in which I still continue to contribute.

In the beginning of 2017, I launched my own website, Asian Film Vault, which I merged in 2018 with Asian Movie Pulse, creating the most complete website about the Asian movie industry, as it deals with almost every country from East and South Asia, and definitely all genres.
