Between March 12 to April 24, 2019, Asian Pop-Up Cinema premiered 16 new titles from Asia including films made by filmmakers based in Beijing, Hong Kong, Taipei, Seoul, Tokyo, Indonesia, Singapore and Mongolia/Switzerland. We have also included a documentary from filmmakers based in San Francisco, and an indie film made by Asian Canadians from Calgary, Alberta. This video provided an overview of the season reinforcing our mission by:
• cultivating an interest in and understanding of Asian cultures via a diverse offering of Asian films;
• connecting the Asian film industry with local Chicago film professionals, educators and students; and
• promoting Chicago as a destination for international visitors.
