user
The New York Asian Film Festival (June 29 - July 15) returns - and this year we’re bringing crazy back!   The opening night film is Pang Ho-cheung’s astonishingly filthy, extremely hilarious VULGARIA, a movie about making movies, shot in just 12 days, all about gangsters named Brother Tyrannosaur, sleazy lawyers, the sex film industry, and men who love donkeys a little too much. The Hollywood Reporter calls it a “...laugh-out-loud, aptly titled comedy.” Pang himself, Hong Kong's hotte...

New York: NY Asian Film Festival

When I first covered the festival numerous years ago at the downtown Anthology Film Archives, I was struck by several features not encountered in any of the other established festivals. The organizers of the festival performed antics on the stage before the films and threw presents like videos and books into the audience. They were greeted by an adoring and enthusiastic crowd who seemed to be familiar with directors and principal characters of the films screened. In short an audience addicted to...

The New York Asian Film Festival is back. And it's five years old! Five years ago, the five of us in Subway Cinema had no film festival experience, no money, no connections - nothing but an intense love for Asian films and a large amount of stupidity that made us think we could put together a film festival focusing on the best contemporary Asian movies.Five years later we still have no money, we still have no connections, and we're still stupid. But somehow we've premiered movies from Suzuki Sei...

This year's NEW YORK ASIAN FILM FESTIVAL saw the Korean film, PLEASE TEACH ME ENGLISH, win the Audience Award by a landslide.Both screenings of ENGLISH sold out in short order, and a third screening was added for the overflow audiences.ENGLISH is a manic, hyperactive comedy about learning English as a second language in Korea, and it also features an incredibly cute little pig who can count.
