Chicago’s Asian Pop Up Cinema has just released the lineup for its 10th season which features 16 new films from the continent. Take a peek at why this film festival is a must-see event!
It takes fearless determination to organize an Asian-centric film festival anywhere outside the continent, but Sophia Wong Boccio did it with flying colors. Now, the bi-annual festival is on its 10th installment and is determined to continue exhibiting the best talent Asia has to offer.
“Film festivals, competitive or non-competitive, big or small, still holds the platform for premiering new films and guests as an introduction to the Asian Cinema,” Boccio shared in a previous interview with Breaking Asia, adding that the film industry in Asia is taking a great leap forward thanks to more streaming platforms and independent film productions.
