We’ve curated a number of shorts that explore LGBT life through the Asian lens. This was achieved with help from notable gay filmmaker, writer and activist Fan Popo. Popo directs the China Queer Film Festival Tour, which has travelled to over 20 major cities in China since 2008. He has also participated in international exchanges in Taipei, Copenhagen and Los Angeles amongst other places.

In 2014 we warmly welcome back Asian Cinema Week into the JUE | Film program. In 2013 Asian Cinema Week was a bold call to cinematic arms. Including feature films, documentaries and shorts from all over Asia (alongside live music, panels and various other interactive events), the inaugural edition carved out a space where local filmmakers and fans alike could collide, share ideas and develop their works. Asian Cinema Week is an outstanding platform for exposing the best of Asian underground cinema.
