After having world premiere at The 31st Tokyo International Film Festival, we are honored to announce the second installment of the Asian Three-Fold Mirror Project, Asian Three-Fold Mirror 2018：Journey will have its international premiere at the 13th Jogja-NETPAC Asian Film Festival (JAFF).
Jogja-NETPAC Asian Film Festival (JAFF) is a premier Asian film festival in Indonesia focusing on the development of Asian cinema. This festival not only contributes to introducing Asian cinema to a wider public in Indonesia, but it also provides a space for the intersection of many sectors such as arts, culture, and tourism.
Since its inception, JAFF has worked closely with NETPAC (Network for the Promotion of Asian Cinema), a worldwide organization of 30 member countries. Headquartered in Colombo Srilanka, NETPAC is a pan-Asian film and cultural organization involving critics, filmmakers, festival organizes and curators, distributors and exhibitors, as well as educators. It is considered a leading authority in Asian cinema.
Each year, JAFF presents several awards to the best films in Asia such as Golden Hanoman Award, Silver Hanoman Award, NETPAC Award, Blencong Award and Geber Award to express the deepest appreciation for Asian cinema.
Asian Three-Fold Mirror 2018：Journey will be screened on December 3 at 13:00 followed by a symposium with guest speakers Daishi Matsunaga (Director/Japan), Edwin (Director/Indonesia) and Ma Sai (DOP & Editor/China).
