About the film festival

Celebrating its 20th Anniversary in 2022, the New York Asian Film Festival (NYAFF) is North America’s leading festival of Asian cinema, called “The best film festival in New York” by The Village Voice and “Arguably the world’s best-curated program of new and classic Asian cinema” by indieWire. Launched in 2002, the festival showcases a wildly diverse lineup of singular titles each year, ranging from mainstream blockbusters and art-house eccentricities to genre and cult classics. It was the first North American film festival to champion the works of Johnnie To, Bong Joon-ho, Park Chan-wook, Takashi Miike and other auteurs of contemporary Asian cinema. Notable festival guests include Lee Byung-hun, Ryoo Seung-wan, Masami Nagasawa, Sammo Hung, Lee Jung-jae, and Jackie Chan. Since 2010, NYAFF has been produced in collaboration with Film at Lincoln Center.
