17th Deauville Asian Film Festival

The Festival takes a break

Throughout sixteen years of successful existence promoting Asian cinema and building cultural understanding through films, tributes and master classes, the Deauville Asian Film Festival, in France, will have to halt this year due to budget constraints and define a new window for itself in the future.
In sixteen years, we have presented more than 400 Asian films, discovering new emerging directors and celebrating many renowned Asian talents, in their presence, such as Shin Sang-ok, Shabana Azmi, Lester James Peries, Amitabh Bachchan, Kim Ki-duk, Christine Hakim, Takashi Miike, Fruit Chan, Chen Kaige, Ryuichi Hiroki, Park Chan-wook, James Lee, Im Kwon-taek, Joe Hisaishi, Koji Yakusho, Jiang Wen, Jia Zhang-Ke, Lee Chang-dong, Lee Yoon-ki, Brillante Mendoza, Lu Ye, Lu Chuan, Hong Sang-soo, Kim Jee-woon, Kiyoshi Kurosawa, Pen-ek Ratanaruang, Wong Kar-Wai, Sono Sion, Malani Fonseka, Hideo Nakata, Tsai Ming-Liang…
We are all proud of the artistic success of the Festival and the new festival’s format, hopefully in 2016, will continue enhancing our passion for filmmaking from talents from all around Asia.
