feff2018

Grande anniversario per il Far East Film Festival, che torna a Udine dal 20 al 28 aprile 2018. Ricorre quest'anno la 20esima edizione della manifestazione dedicata al cinema popolare dell'Estremo Oriente, vero e proprio faro culturale capace di attirare numeri altissimi di appassionati, giornalisti, studenti (e ospiti asiatici, anche quest'anno molto numerosi). Il programma è ricchissimo e comprende ben 81 film, di cui 55 in concorso e 21 opere prime e seconde. La novità di quest'anno è l'introduzione di una giuria incaricata di assegnare il Gelso d'oro, formata dal produttore di Hong Kong Albert Lee (responsabile del successo di Jackie Chan), dal produttore americano (che ha lanciato il cinema indie cinese) Peter Loher e dal regista, sceneggiatore e attore Massimo Gaudioso. Restano gli altri due premi: il Gelso d’oro assegnato dal pubblico e il Gelso nero assegnato dagli accreditati Black Dragon. L'ospite più attesa è la mitica Brigitte Lin, l'icona di Hong Kong Express, insignita del Gelso d'oro alla carriera. Di seguito, il programma. Per i biglietti, ulteriori dettagli e informazioni dul punto gastronomico Casa Ramen, gli eventi e Focus Ansia e Ties That Bind, vi invitiamo a consultare il sito fareastfilm.com.
