Asian World Film Fest Asian World Film Fest

Festival Poster

The theme of this year’s Festival is female empowerment and the growing professional influence of women in the Asian region film industry. The Festival’s artwork has been designed by acclaimed Kyrgyz artist Kadyr Batyrkanov. He characterizes his minimalist creation and approach for the new 2018 poster by depicting the moment of awakening and liberation of a flaming, Pheonix-like woman who is about to take flight, spreading her wings with a rebellious spirit, in anticipation of transformation and renewal.
