ASEF Cultural Grants 2002: 4th Deauville Asian Film Festival

Culture Events


Project Period:
07 Mar 2002 - 10 Mar 2002
Deauville (France)


Six young directors were selected to travel to the 4th Deauville Asian Film Festival, courtesy of the ASEF’s Cultural Grants Programme. The film festival has a tradition of showing Asian films to a European audience; it gave the directors increased exposure to Europe and helped further the understanding of cinema across the two continents.

The six young directors selected for the festival were:

– Kenneth Bi for “A Small Miracle” (Hong Kong, China)

– Akihiko Shiota for “Gips” (Japan)

– Ryuichi Hiroki for “Tokyo Trash Baby” (Japan)

– Amir Muhammad for “Lips To Lips” (Malaysia)

– Vincent Wong for “Hype” (Singapore)

– Son Jae-Goun for “The Man Who Watched Too Much” (Korea)

A press conference was held at the ASEF on 21 February 2002 with filmmaker Vincent Wong, also a graduate student in sociology and English literature at the National University of Singapore, and the Executive Director of ASEF, Ambassador Delfin Colome.
