We are ready! Helsinki Cine Aasia 2016 kicks off

Long-awaited Helsinki Cine Aasia 2016 is finally here! Later today, the screening of the Johnnie To’s dazzling musical Office will kick off a feast of contemporary East and Southeast Asian cinema. Office will be screened at Kinopalatsi on Thursday 3.3. at 6pm.

Japanese films have always been a big hit at Helsinki Cine Aasia, and the advance ticket sales give reason to believe that they will remain popular with the festival-goers this year too. There are not less than six films from Japan in this year’s programme – all different but all guaranteed to provide an unforgettable cinematic experience!

As a special treat, the festival has invited to Helsinki Remton Zuasola from the Philippines. The director with true trademark style of long shots and theater-like settings will attend the screening of his latest film SWAP, an autobiographical kidnapping drama, on Saturday 5 March at 5pm at Andorra.

The four-day festival continues until Sunday 6.3. It’s not yet too late to get your tickets!

See you at the movies!
