Helsinki Cine Aasia 2021 – ONLINE has now ended but the celebration of Asian cinema goes on.
External gratitude to everyone who took part on our online festival in the past weekend. There would not be a festival without you! We were glad to see that people from all over Finland participated the festival.
Sode Yukiko’s Japanese drama ARISTOCRATS (2021) took the first place as most atched film. Japanese films HOLD ME BACK (2020) and AINU MOSIR (2020) came in second and third.
Our free additional program is still availanbe at our official YouTube channel.
Including exclusive conversations with the filmmakers of our 2021 online program and discussions about the censorship, political climate and women’s position in East and Southeast Asia.
Helsinki Cine Aasia together with Cinema Orion presents a series of Asian films on silver screen when restrictions allow it. The series includes films from the program of our online festival and some new additions. We hope to see you there in the upcoming summer. Let’s celebrate Asian culture together.
Follow our website and social media accounts for updates.
The festival will return in 2022 celebrating it’s 10th Anniversary!
Hopefully we can return to the cinemas.
Long live Asian cinema!
