CinemAsia is more than showcasing the newest and the best Asian cinema.

We welcome film professionals from the Asian and the Dutch film industry to connect, and bridge the cultural barriers. Showcasing the creative minds of Asia and the Netherlands vice versa.


For young film makers we provide CinemAsia FilmLAB, our talent development hub that focuses on finding and nurturing talent with an Asian heritage to create more diversity and inclusion here in the Netherlands.


This year CinemAsia welcomes guests from Japan, Hong Kong, Tawain, Thailand, the Philippines and of course Indonesia.


A number of meetings on Asian and Dutch films and film industry will be organized, including meet-ups, a masterclass, and a roundtable session.
