Following the successful virtual screenings last year, the New York Asian Film Festival will again be available nationwide in 2021, giving Asian cinema fans who aren’t living in New York the opportunity to watch films that don’t come to their local multiplex. From the deadly serious to the gleefully absurd, from the disquieting to the freaky, NYAFF continues to celebrate the most vibrant and provocative cinema out of Asia today.
This year’s event will follow a hybrid model that will allow fans from across the country to experience many of the NYAFF’s many offerings. The festival will be home to over sixty movies, including world and North American premieres. This is a great opportunity for fans of Asian cinema or for audiences who want to experience something new. As the trailer shows, there is going to be something for everybody.
The New York Asian Film Festival takes place from August 6 – August 22
