The 5th Terracotta Film Festival promises to the biggest and best yet expanding from the usual four days to ten days. The films will be screened at The Prince Charles Cinema and the ICA. With an outstanding line up of mainstream and independent cinema from across Asia and masterclasses from some of the key players of Asian cinema, Terracotta has something for anyone with an interest in Asian cinemas along with screenings that will please the general cinephile and a special Terror-cotta (with Fright Fest) all night line-up of the best of Asian horror (which includes my all-time number one Japanese horror film).
The festival this year is organised into four strands: Current Asian Cinema, In Memory Of: Leslie Cheung & Anita Mui, Spotlight on: Indonesia and of course, the Terror-cotta horror all nighter as previously mentioned.
Dates for your diary are:
Thursday 6 June to Saturday 15 June 2013.
Check back here for a brief rundown of the full line up after 4pm tomorrow (7th May 2013).
