new york asian film festival 2007

Asian film fans, it is time. Dragon Dynasty and Subway Cinema present the New York Asian Film Festival 2007, June 22-July 8 at the IFC Center and Japan Society. Featuring a truckload of some of the best cinema Asia has to offer. 17 days, 30 films, including Feng Xiaogang's The Banquet, Ryu Seung-wan's City of Violence, Soi Cheang's Dog Bite Dog, Johnnie To's Exiled, Lee Sang-Il's Hula Girls, Park Chan-Wook's I'm a Cyborg But That's OK, and a whole lot more. There's also a special 15th anniversary presentation of John Woo's Hard Boiled. It just looks like a fantastic lineup. Here's a New York Times write-up on the festival: Asian Cinema, Swimming in Crime and Cuteness

This film festival should not be confused with the Asian American International Film Festival, presented by Asian CineVision in association with Asian Society. That is an entirely different, equally awesome festival happening in New York next month, July 19-28. Peruse the schedule, buy your tickets, make some plans.
