Udine 2014: ScreenAnarchy's Top Ten Most Anticipated Films
Friday, April 25 sees the start of the 16th edition of Europe's biggest and finest festival for popular Asian cinema -- the Udine Far East Film Festival. During the busy and eventful nine days, attendees will be able to watch some of the most highly praised -- and undoubtedly carefully selected -- regional offerings, many of which will have their International and European premieres. Given that most of the pictures shown in the competition section probably won't be distributed widely across the old continent, it's a wonderful opportunity to catch up on Asian mainstream film right in the heart of Italy's wealthy and welcoming provincial town.
I'll be attending the highly regarded event for the first time this year, and since I've heard so many great things about it from many of my fellow cinephiles, I can't tell you how excited I am right now. As part of preparation for the Far East Film Festival, I created the following ScreenAnarchy list of ten most anticipated films. Nevertheless, there's much more goodness, and many hidden gems, in the impressive line-up, so don't forget to check it out. I'm sure everyone will find something of interest there.
