Experience the best films from Asia at “Asia On Screen 2015” showing from May 8 to 12 at the Shang Cineplex, Shangri-La Plaza, Mandaluyong City. It is presented by the Asia Society Philippines and Security Bank, together with Shangri-La Plaza and the Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP).
Asia On Screen 2015 is Manila’s premier Asian film festival, featuring award-winning and critically-acclaimed films from across the region. Participating countries in the film festival include Australia, China, Indonesia, India, Iran, Japan, the Philippines and South Korea.
Despite sharing history, values and similar ways of life with Asian country neighbors, Filipinos are less familiar about Asian cinema compared to Hollywood blockbuster films. With the burgeoning of the film industries across Asia—and exciting creative talent emerging from the region home to 4.5 billion people—there is no better time than now to showcase and celebrate the best homegrown talent from the region.
Whether you are a fan of comedy, romance, action or drama, the festival’s carefully curated selection of films across genres holds something for you. From the amusing trials of a Korean husband trying to rid himself of a nagging spouse, the harrowing tale of a Japanese father forced to choose between two sons, to a glimpse of fraught family ties in distant Iran, viewers can experience a slice of life from all corners of Asia via the silver screen.
Tickets will be available on-site at the Shang Cineplex. For updates on the films and screening schedule, stay tuned on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram at @AsiaSocietyPH.
