In Australia there is a market, a culture and an audience for film festivals. These events are held in Australia each year. However, there is no ASIAN AUSTRALIAN FILM FESTIVAL – which features both indie/short films created by Asian Australian filmmakers. These type of film festivals are very common in the USA, Canada and the UK, but are non existent in Australia. Of course, there are mini regional festivals and Asian festivals where films from Asia are bought in – but there is a need to have one for purely Asian Australian filmmakers as well. This will most likely occur at the end of 2018 or in 2019 and will require support from all relevant stakeholders and the community.
More details of this project will be revealed soon – the first one will be a forum in Melbourne in October – November period of 2017.
