The London East Asia Film Festival was established in 2015 as a non-profit arts organisation to champion the growing collaboration and diversity in East Asian filmmaking.
After an incredibly successful pre-festival in 2015, LEAFF’s 1st edition officially launched in 2016 on 20th October at ODEON Leicester Square with THE AGE OF SHADOWS (dir. Kim Jee-woon). 40 films were screened over 11 days at venues across central London, and ended with Closing Gala film, THREE (dir. Johnnie To).
LEAFF aims to champion the growing collaboration in East Asian filmmaking with a philosophy that marks a shift in the cinematic landscape of East Asia, and moves away from cultural and cinematic borders. Our vision is to bring a much wider, eclectic, and diverse programme of films from over 13 countries to show the richness and diversity of the region and its people. We want to draw people in with the familiar, and offer opportunities to see something new.

Artists Tatsumi Orimoto, Tsuneko Taniuchi, and Kim Young-mi will be in attendance for a discussion after the screening.
Tatsumi Orimoto has created a unique relationship to performance, film and photography by inviting an audience to become essential participants in the production of artworks. His recent work with his mother has captured the imagination and provided insights into how an artist can transform universal themes such as ageing and family into artworks of intimacy and beauty. Orimoto worked with artists such as Nam June Paik and Joseph Beuys and continues across decades to participate in museums and biennials throughout the world.
