Udine Far East Film Festival Is Underway! Just Look At This Stellar Asian Film Lineup!

Brian Clark, European Editor
If you want a comprehensive survey of what's new and exciting in modern Asian film, just glance at the below list of what's playing at the Far East Film Festival in Udine, Italy. The festival kicked off last Friday and runs through April 27, and with their extensive lineup, filmmaker panel discussions and workshops on everything from Asian cooking to martial arts techniques, FEFF has completely transformed an Italian town full of Venetian Piazzas and Friulian cuisine into Western Europe's go-to point for Asian film and culture.

I'll be reporting back over the next several days with reviews, but for the moment, take a gander at the program below (Shout out to our Korean correspondent Pierce Conran for transcribing and organizing these by region) and explore the films we've already reviewed by clicking the links. And since I am, as usual, overwhelmed with the programming choices here, do drop notes about any films you're curious to hear about in the comments.
