For 18 years, Asiatica Film Festival has combined films and music
from the Asian world, promoting and supporting the diffusion of Asian cultural
expressions in Rome. The original idea was to build an innovative channel
of communication with the Asian continent to spread awareness of its socio-cultural
and economic situation, through different art forms.
Every year, Asiatica presents about 50 unpublished productions,
including feature films and documentaries, boosting the knowledge of Asian realities.
On the occasion of the next edition of the Festival, the Cultural Association Mnemosyne, promoter of the event for 17 years, has chosen to transfer its role to Join Cultural Initiatives, the new cooperative society for the promotion and distribution of cinematographic culture. An international jury, made up of three members, will be called upon to award the prize Città di Roma 2017.
The cultural offer of the Festival is aimed at a broad and not necessarily specialized public. Given its multifaceted nature, in every edition the Festival has attracted both filmmakers or experts of the field and those eager to deepen their knowledge of the Asian world, gathering a public of about 9,000 viewers.
