The aim of the Asian Summer Film Festival is to present Asian culture through the popular cinematography produced in the countries of this continent. This vision of Asia is also shaped with other aspects such as gastronomy, art and theatre (exhibitions, workshops, martial arts performances, traditional dances and popular plays).
The festival has an official competition selection with prizes such as the Jury Award, the Lucky Cat Award, given by the audience, and the Critics Award. There is also a children’s section, retrospectives, special screenings and themed marathons like the Late Night Screening and a Horror Night.
