CINEMASIA 2018 | 11th Edition | ASIAN FILM FESTIVAL AMSTERDAM!
“Cinemasia can be the place for all people, stories and struggles” As the 11th edition CinemAsia kicks off. Artistic Director Maggie Lee wants to show her love for Asian cinema to the people in The Netherlands and Europe and show them that Asian Film audiences have a very sophisticated taste.
This is the 4th time I have been invited for the festival and I am always looking forward to this. This year movies from Indonesia are very much on the program. Which I personally like of course. Also films from: Japan, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, South Korea. Thailand and the Philippines.
Throughout the film festival there is also a CinemAsia Food Market, Rainbow Karaoke, Masterclass by Indonesian director Joko Anwar, Talkshow for Queer women, Food & Film Days and the 9th edition of FILM LAB which provides an opportunity for Dutch-Asian filmmakers to home their skills and gain experience in the art of filmmaking both in front of and behind the camera.

One movie I desperately want to see is the Indonesian movie about the feminist KARTINI! Her fight for both gender equality and the right for education during the Dutch colonial time. A beautiful drama about the most heroines in Indonesian history.
Thank you Giovanna Chen Huynh for the Invite.
