Terracotta Fest is back to bring to your eyes a kaleidoscopic variety of new and classic Asian films. This years festival will take place again at The Prince Charles Cinema and The Institute of Contemporary Art, London between 23 May – 1 June 2014.
This years special ‘SPOTLIGHT ON: …’ will focus on the Philippines, which is of particular interest to me as my new sister in law is Filipino! There are plenty of Q&A's with filmmakers and actors, plus horror fans can catch an Asian-flavored all-nighter. Those familiar with Asian cinema will recognise the presence of the more familiar big names in the schedule: Andy Lau, Jackie Chan, Takashi Miike and Kim Ki-duk.
