NYAFF – New York Asian Film Festival at Lincoln Center

The New York Asian Film Festival is upon us. The festival officially boasts a line-up “packed with the blockbusters, hit romances and wild comedies that are packing them in across Asia.” Unofficially, my inside man tells me that in past years almost all of the films screened have been fairly ridiculous, shocking, and/or straight up crazy. Especially notable is The Miami Connection (Saturday July 7th @ 11:15pm), which the series organizer has described as by far the worst, weirdest movie that he has ever seen. It will be introduced with a Taekwondo demonstration by the director. Yowza.

NYAFF, programmed and operated by Subway Cinema, started from humble(r) beginnings at Anthology Film archives in 2002 and has since found new digs at the typically high brow Lincoln Center. And somewhere along the way, Subway Cinema became a not-for-profit organization. Great success story, but the brass tax is that there will be blood. Lots of it. And martial arts. And absurdist comedies. Oh, and some beautifully artistic dramas thrown in there for good measure.

NYAFF starts today (Friday June 29th) and continues until Thursday July 12th at Walter Reade Theater.
