Welcome to the 4th EAFFI Online at IFI@Home

IFI@Home and the East Asia Film Festival Ireland are delighted to present the 4th edition of the festival, and its first online. As always, the festival brings innovative, diverse, independent and inspiring films from East Asia together with rich and otherwise unavailable contributions from both newly established and renowned filmmakers.


We are especially proud to present interviews and Q&As with filmmakers including Kôji Fukada (A Girl Missing) from Japan, Cambodian-Chinese director Hong Khaou (Monsoon), and Jia Zhangke (Swimming Out Till the Sea Turns Blue) from China.

The East Asia Film Festival Ireland would like to thank the Arts Council, RTÉ Supporting the Arts, Dublin City Council, the Irish Film Institute, and all its sponsors and partners for their invaluable support.
