Asia’s film industries have undergone significant transformation in the last 30 years. From bilateral co-production agreements to pan-Asian financing, Asian cinema has assumed a regional identity well beyond its constituent national cinemas.

This book explores the collaborative models of film production, distribution, exhibition and reception that have enabled greater co-operation and integration between Asia’s film industries. In doing so, it contributes to the burgeoning international fields of transnational and world cinema, providing a fresh perspective on Asian cinema through the lens of comparative film studies.

What People are Saying About This

Chris Berry

Asian Cinema: A Regional View is a turning point. It replaces the idea of Asian cinema as a set of national cinemas with a proliferation of transborder linkages across the region. Its chapters on regional co-productions, remakes, film festivals, streaming services, cinema archives and more will fundamentally change how we perceive Asian cinema.
