Introduction to the film festival

The AAIFF, the All Asian Independent Film Festival, has been launched to support independent filmmakers throughout Asia to display their unique ideas, to tell the stories deep down inside their hearts, and to inspire both audiences and other independent filmmakers. As the sister film festival of ÉCU—the European Independent Film Festival, which has been held in Paris for 17 years, the AAIFF has the ability to harness the rock-solid reputation of ÉCU as being one of the World’s foremost independent film festivals and to help bring global attention to Asia’s independent filmmakers. Our objective is to offer excellent opportunities for all the Asian independent filmmakers to find audiences for their films, to connect with peers, distributors and talent scouts – and importantly to provide them unforgettable film festival experience. Sfilmmaker is our exclusive platform for cooperation in China, and we look forward to your good film.
