NYAFF Field Report!

Posted: under New York Asian Film Festival.

Two days down for this year’s New York Asian Film Festival – 12 days to go. The score so far:

.

- MILOCRORZE sold out hard and we had to turn away about 30 people in the standby line. We’re so sorry! There are still tickets available to the MILOCRORZE screening on Sunday, July 10 @ 8pm at Japan Society.

.

- HUGE walk-up audience for BKO: BANGKOK KNOCKOUT. We had sold about 40 tickets in advance for the screening and we sold about 105 at the box office right before the show. The ticket guy almost had a nervous breakdown.

.

- Sold-out screenings of SHAOLIN (which was a blast on the big screen) and 13 ASSASSINS: DIRECTOR’S CUT. One more screening of SHAOLIN (Thursday, July 7 @ 8:45pm) but no more of 13 ASSASSINS, which is a movie that’s played NYC so many times and is still selling out!

.

Prints are arriving!

.

DETECTIVE DEE is in the house!

.

VERSUS – ready for its anniversary
showing with Tak Sakaguchi and Yudai Yamaguchi!

.

Standby lines are forming!

.

The standby line for 13 ASSASSINS! Holy cow, that’s a lot of people!

.

Movies are being watched!

.

Proof of movie watchage!

.

If you absolutely want to see something, and it’s an evening showtime, make sure you buy your tickets in advance to avoid disappointment. And keep on coming up and having fun! So far, the festival has been a blast. We’ve gone through about 7 cases of Kirin (the world’s best beer sponsor) so far and you guys are going to go through a lot more before this festival is over.
