Visit our archive for previous editions of the NEW YORK ASIAN FILM FESTIVAL:
and 2005.

June 22 - 29, 2006
Go to the Lincoln Center Festival for Asian music, dance and theater!
From July 10th through 30th, the Lincoln Center Festival brings extraordinary Asian performers to America. The hippest artists in Bangkok converge in New York on July 28th and 29th for Ramakien: A Rak Opera, a radical and lusty re-telling of the timeless Thai masterpiece The Ramayana. Filmmakers, visual artists, rock and pop stars, underground electronica DJs, and other assorted Thai scenesters illuminate present day Thai culture in this vibrant, fiery, and often raucous extravaganza. On July 21st and 22nd, the prolific Japanese choreographer Saburo Teshigawara fuses sculpture with dance, air, space and time in his mysterious Bones in Pages. A cult figure in Japan, this celebrated artist has achieved iconic status throughout Europe and Festival provides a unique chance to witness his rare gifts. And, from July 27th through July 30th, Singapore’s Ong Keng Sen explores the secret world of the enigmatic geisha in Geisha, an enchanting tapestry of tea-house stories. This new production by Theatreworks Singapore includes traditional Kabuki dancers and performances on the three-stringed Japanese shamisen.

On June 28, Palm Pictures and the ImaginAsian will cooperate to release the Asian-American film, THE MOTEL. A coming-of-age story about a chubby 13 year old kid in a sleazy strip motel, it’s been getting all kinds of acclaim and is the first movie from Michael Kang.

There isn’t anything in town for the next 10 days that can compare to the New York Asian Film Festival (June 16 - July 1) and here’s tips on what’s happening.

Screenings are selling out right and left. FUNKY FOREST: THE FIRST CONTACT, SHINOBI, A BITTERSWEET LIFE and THE GREAT YOKAI WAR sold out their first screenings and their second screenings are well on the way to selling out. Get your tickets now!

Tickets are still available for:
FUNKY FOREST: THE FIRST CONTACT - Saturday, June 24 @ 8:30pm (Anthology)
SHINOBI - Sunday, June 25 @ 6pm (Anthology)
GREAT YOKAI WAR - Sunday, June 25 @ 8:30pm
A BITTERSWEET LIFE - Tuesday, June 27 @ 6pm (ImaginAsia)

UMIZARU 2: TEST OF TRUST has sold out. We will be holding some tickets at the box office so we can sell them the day of the show, but they’ll be sold on a first come first serve basis. So I’d suggest getting to the ImaginAsian as early as possible on Thursday, June 29 to snag these hard-to-get tickets.

KRRISH will be playing Thursday, June 22 @ 6:30pm at the ImaginAsian as part of the NYAFF. Tickets are still available but they’re going fast.

Same story with the CROMARTIE HIGH SCHOOL screening on Friday, June 23 @ 8:30pm.

The four Ram Gopal Varma movies we’re showing - EK HASINA THI, AB TAK CHHAPPAN, COMPANY and the World Premiere of SHIVA - are movies that are really knocking audiences out. However, we want more people to see them - that’s why we bring the festival to NYC every year: we want you to see these movies. People aren’t buying as many tickets to these RGV shows as they should be, and we understand that he’s a director you’ve never heard of and that you may be hesitant to take a risk. So with that in mind we’ve lowered the ticket prices to all Ram Gopal Varma shows to $6. Including SHIVA! So now you don’t have an excuse. Varma is a director on the caliber of Tsui Hark and Johnnie To and you owe it to yourself to check him out.

See you at the festival!

This is really, really simple, but - as a service to those who like their hand held - we're gonna spell it out...
