The Terracotta Far East Film Festival (TFEFF) has announced it will be taking a break in 2015, promising to be back in 2016, bigger and better…
“This doesn’t mean we have completely disappeared for 2015,” says festival director Joey Leung. “Terracotta will participate in various events around the country throughout the year and 2016 will see a dramatically different Terracotta, one that promises to deliver uncompromising excellence in Asian cinema – we look forward to seeing you there with us.”
Leung said his dedicated team will take this opportunity to expand the scope of the event, aiming for greater impact in London’s crowded event calendar. He admitted the film festival landscape has changed considerably over the last few years and says the focus will be on creating a revitalised, cutting edge platform for Asian films in the UK.
The first Terracotta Far East Film Festival took place in 2009 and it has since become the biggest event for Asian cinema in London. Six years on, the team has produced seven Asian film festivals, including Hong Kong 15 in 2012, celebrating the 15th anniversary of Hong Kong’s return to Chinese sovereignty.
