After this episode of Coming Attractions was recorded, one of AFA’s films planned for December, No Hard Feelings, was not cleared for screening in its intended form.
Still, you’ll get to learn about the film, which centres a German-born Iranian falling for an Iranian immigrant, along with Blue Moon, an anthology film where each screening has a unique playback order, and the latest export from China’s growing slate of arthouse films, Damp Season.

The Asian Film Archive (AFA) is a charity that focuses on culturally important works by independent Asian filmmakers. It preserves Asia’s rich film heritage in a permanent collection and promotes a wider critical appreciation of Asia’s cinematic works through initiating programmes like screenings and talks.
More than just a repository of film and tape, AFA aspires to be a hub for the film community, contributing to culture, scholarship and industry.
