About Asian Film Awards 關於亞洲電影大獎

In 2013, three main Asian film festivals, including the Busan International Film Festival (BIFF), the Hong Kong International Film Festival (HKIFF) and the Tokyo International Film Festival (TIFF), joined together to create the non-profit organization, the Asian Film Awards Academy (the “AFA Academy”), which aims to promote and develop Asian cinema and its talents. The AFA Academy highlights, strengthens and develops Asian film industry and culture through the annual Asian Film Awards (the “Awards”), year-round initiatives, such as masterclasses, screenings, and professional development and mentorship programmes, and strategies for building regional and international audiences.

Members of the AFA Academy are drawn from all past nominees and winners of the Asian Film Awards. Members will vote for the Asian Film Awards and also participate in various AFA Academy activities involving film professionals and audiences in Asia and around the world.
