For its fourth edition this March, the East Asia Film Festival Ireland (EAFFI) once again celebrates the artistry and variety of filmmaking from East Asia over four days from March 26th-29th. Following the historic success of Bong Joon Ho’s Parasite at this year’s Oscars, interest in cinema from East Asia has never been stronger. This year’s programme includes new films from prominent filmmakers Wang Xiaoshuai (So Long, My Son), Kôji Fukada (Harmonium), and Hong Khaou (Lilting), and a 35mm screening of Bong’s 2006 blockbuster The Host.

Commenting on this year’s programme, the festival’s Artistic and Programming Director Marie-Pierre Richard said, ‘EAFFI brings to Irish audiences the increasingly popular, diverse and exciting work from established and new filmmakers from East and South East Asia. This year’s programme offers a wide range of film genres, and explores topical themes around culture, the environment, gender, and history, with films from Chinese, Japanese, Hong Kong, South Korean and Taiwanese cinemas. The films presented interrogate the complexity of human nature and our relationship with the world around us.’
