5 & 6 May 2018 in KINO Rotterdam

After two successful On Tour editions in this great film theatre located just around the corner of Chinatown, CinemAsia returns to KINO Rotterdam in May. We bring along a fine selection of the CinemAsia Film Festival to Rotterdam, as we want to put the diversity of modern Asia and the new generation of Asian filmmakers under the spotlight.

Besides the five feature films from South-Korea, Japan, Taiwan and Indonesia we will screen the five shorts produced by CinemAsia FilmLAB.

  • The-Great-Buddha-Plus-Movie-CinemAsia-2018
    The Great Buddha+ 大佛普拉斯
  • 1987: When the Day Comes
  • Kartini
  • A Taxi Driver 택시 운전사
  • What's for Dinner, Mom? ママ、ごはんまだ?
  • Inburgering
  • Hangul Blues
  • Father and Son
  • Truth Will Out
  • Hirofumi’s Suitcase


To get the real CinemAsia feeling, we couldn’t go to Rotterdam without entertainment and food.

It is starting to be a new tradition during the On Tour in Rotterdam: CinemAsia Karaoke Night in KINO. Like last year, karaoke master Wei Not Sing and his lovely assistants accompany you to sing your old time favourites and guilty pleasures from ABBA, Britney or maybe the Cardigans. In need of some ‘liquid courage’, don’t worry, the bar is open and close to the stage. So join this crazy karaoke night, sing your heart out and feel free on Liberation Day.

In regards of food, KINO is also the place to be. Chef Raoul Roger has developed two delicious Asian dishes that are only available during CinemAsia On Tour.
Saturday is Korean night; you can enjoy Korean Fried Chicken with kimchi fried rice topped with a fried egg, Korean cucumber salad and mung bean salad.
Sunday is Japanese Night: with Karaage with rice, spicy edamame, Japanese coleslaw and ponzu sauce. On both days there is a vegetarian option.
Do you want to combine your film visit with a nice Asian dinner, reserve a table here.
