CinemAsia Film Festival’s statement considering the Coronavirus

Statement of CinemAsia’s management considering SARS-COV-2 and COVID-19 (Coronavirus) 

CinemAsia closely monitors the developments regarding the spread of the Coronavirus. Therefore we are taking the following measures: 

Dispensers with medical grade sanitizer will be placed at all our locations. We advise all visitors to use this. Appropriate measures have been taken to actively inform our employees, volunteers and the public about hygiene and preventive actions to prevent further spread. Extra cleaning services have been scheduled at our locations and surfaces such as the bar, tables, keyboards and door handles will be thoroughly and regularly cleaned.


CinemAsia has no official festival guests from China, South Korea and Italy. We ask everyone who has been in northern Italy, South Korea or China in recent weeks to stay home and to take their own responsibility in preventing further spread of the virus. When you feel ill or feverish, please go home and contact your GP. Do NOT go to the hospital to prevent further spread among the hospitalized. 

The management of CinemAsia is in close contact with the Municipality, the GGD and the RIVM. Should the situation change during the festival, we will take all measures to ensure the safety and health of our staff, volunteers and visitors. CinemAsia will always follow government measures.
