Cinema is an incredible medium for cultural and social interchange, the currency of intellectual debate and a constantly transforming window on the world. Human myths and stories are universal. Every culture has a different language and a different approach in interpreting these stories and it is this difference that is so exciting and challenging. The origins, however, are the same: simple human qualities such as trust, passion, desire, greed, despair, hope and love - all common denominators in the world we live in. Personal stories from every country are crossing borders, and growing international audiences are experiencing meaningful, life-enriching and entertaining stories unfolding on their screens - both big and small. Working with established, new and emerging talent from Asia and Europe - directors, producers and actors, as well as designers and technicians behind the camera - we aim to provide a platform for this talent to bring their work to a wider audience.
