OzAsia Film Festival

OzAsia Film Festival

Ozasia is back with another big line up of stellar retrospective programs and a diverse taste of contemporary cinema across Asia.

Across Asia A selection of recent acclaimed films from across Asia, which identify filmmakers to watch, as well as the cultural discussions and forces of change at play in this dynamic region.
Contemporary Lebanese Cinema Once considered a jewel of Middle Eastern cinema, Lebanon's cinema has again come to the fore, exploring the daily lives of ordinary people while the reverberations of past conflicts are never far from the surface.
Asian Cult Cinema Over time, Asian cinema has become a powerhouse of genre filmmaking, and since the 1970s, increasingly built a cult audience in the West. These are a selection of Asian genre films making waves in 2019.
Bong Joon-Ho A figurehead of the South Korean New Wave, Bong Joon-ho has used genre filmmaking to cast a critical lens on South Korea,  US imperialism as well as global issues of justice, corruption and the environment. This retrospective includes earlier works alongside his most recent Palme d'Or winner Parasite. Find out more in our cinematheque program.
