Rooftop Asian Short Films Screening by RED DOT CINEMA



Red Dot Cinema
~a place for Asian Independent Films~

•About Red Dot Cinema

Red Dot Cinema brings independent short films from Asia to the world by distributing films to independent event organizers around the world, holding screening events across different cities. We empower organizers in putting up cool and fun screening events in the most creative spaces.

There are many independent film festivals in the world but there is definitely a lack of Asian films in these festivals. Through Red Dot Cinema, we would like to raise awareness of Asian independent films and promote Asian cultures.

Red Dot Cinema將帶領亞洲的短篇獨立電影走向世界。我們會分享這些優秀的電影作品給全球範圍的放映合作夥伴,讓他們在各自的城市舉辦Red Dot Cinema放映會。我們支持,鼓勵大家在各自最in最潮的地方上映這些即酷又有趣的電影。

現在世界各地都有許多獨立電影放映活動,但是亞洲電影卻只占這其中很小壹部分。我們希望通過Red Dot Cinema能提高大家對亞洲獨立電影的關注,同時也推廣亞洲文化。
