Udine Far East Film Festival

Far East Film Festival is a festival dedicated to popular cinema from the Far East and South-East Asia, organized yearly since 1999 by Centro Espressioni Cinematografiche in Udine, Italy. It takes place in the main theatre of the city Teatro Nuovo Giovanni da Udine, seating 1200 people, as well as at cinema Visionario. More than 70 new films (along with a programme of retrospectives, documentaries, and restored films) are screened in 9 days, with more than 60 official guests (actors, directors, producers), who take part in the daily Feff Talks with the Festival audience.

In addition to the Audience Award, since 2018 the White Mulberry Award has been assigned to the best first feature in the official selection, by a specially selected jury. The Far East Film Festival also hosts the FEFF Campus, an educational project dedicated to young Asian and European aspiring journalists, the co-production workshop Ties That Bind, and Focus Asia, a market for projects in development. A special programme of more than 100 collateral events focusing on Asian culture takes place yearly in different locations of the city.
