East Asia Film Festival

Now in its third year, the East Asia Film Festival Ireland (EAFFI) brings together the voices of significant filmmakers from a multitude of geographical contexts: from the Han river in South Korea to Osaka and Tokyo, from Hong Kong to Taipei, to the Wu mountains and small villages of subtropical China, to the villages and borders of Thailand and Malaysia.

​The festival is honoured to welcome auteur filmmaker Tsai Ming-Liang and his long-term collaborator, actor Lee Kang-Sheng. They are both here to present rare screenings of three films specially selected by Tsai and his producer for our festival: The River (1997); I Don’t Want To Sleep Alone (2006); and his latest film, Your Face (2018).
