For the past two decades, East Asia has been the site of the most significant developments in world cinema. This new anthology captures the enthusiasm for East Asian cinema felt by film lovers and film professionals the world over. The book advances a coherent and original argument, emphasising the transnational nature of both film festivals and filmmaking in the region. At the same time, the range of concerns, styles, and theoretical approaches represented is so wide that the interplay among them, and the variety of festivals discussed, lend the book itself an almost festival-like quality. Film Festivals and East Asia makes a crucial contribution to scholarship not only on East Asian film festivals, but on East Asian cinemas in general. --Chris Fujiwara, editor of Undercurrent
The Film Festival Yearbook project represents a unique opportunity to study the multi-faceted phenomenon of film festivals. It focuses on both global networks and local practices and sheds new light on the artistic, economic and political issues that are currently reshaping the global cultural field. Bringing together academics and practitioners from an impressively wide range of professional and national origins, it embraces both empirical and theoretical analysis. In so doing it provides striking new insights into a hugely significant cultural phenomenon. --Jean-Michel Frodon, Cahiers du cinema, former editor-in-chief
Film Festivals and East Asia is a very timely anthology. Combining academic research and interviews it offers both in-depth studies of and up-to-the-minute insights into what is at once the fastest growing sector of the film festival circuit and the most academically neglected. It is a vital contribution to both Asian Film Studies and Film Festival Studies. --Chris Berry, Professor of Film & TV Studies, Goldsmiths University of London
