TFEFF 2013: new venues, new sections, new dates

The Terracotta Festival, for its fifth edition, will expand from the usual four days to ten days from
Thursday 6 June to Saturday 15 June 2013
. The festival will increase the number of films and
venues, and still remain in the heart of the capital.

Terracotta Festival organisers are delighted to announce that more strands have been added to
the line-up. The four strands of the festival are: CURRENT ASIAN CINEMA, IN MEMORY OF:
Leslie Cheung & Anita Mui, SPOTLIGHT ON: Indonesia and the Terror Cotta Horror All-
Terracotta Festival will continue to screen its usual selection of the best contemporary films from
any genre, any Far East country, at the Prince Charles Cinema from 6 – 9 June 2013. Like
previous editions, guest actors and directors will attend the festival to introduce their film, host Q&A
sessions, run Masterclasses and interact with festival goers. This will be the CURRENT ASIAN
CINEMA Section
of the festival.

Two prolific and well respected Hong Kong actors, Leslie Cheung and Anita Mui, passed away
unexpectedly, and in tragic circumstances, in 2003. Ten years later, their impression on film lovers
around the world is still very strong. Terracotta Festival would like to take this opportunity to
present some highlights of their screen legacy.

An additional five days from 11-15 June 2013 have been added for a new section entirely
dedicated to an emerging territory. This section will be called “SPOTLIGHT ON:…” and this year
the festival will shine the spotlight on contemporary Indonesian cinema.
Taking place at the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA), this section will showcase the exciting
breadth of genres, directors and subject matters from this country.

Whilst the Prince Charles Cinema is a perfect venue (leading cult cinema in the centre of
Chinatown), the new structure and the ICA will give a wider audience more opportunities to take
part in the Festival.

Last but not least, the Terror Cotta Horror All-Nighter returns following the success of last year’s
event. Showcasing the diversity and ingenuity of horror from the Far East, expect a mix of ghosts,
monsters, zombies, demons and cold-blooded killers from various East Asian territories.
What is Bobo are the official design sponsors of the Terracotta Far East Film Festival for the third
consecutive year, creating the festivals branding, on screen identity and all of its promotional

Festival Director Joey Leung comments: “It is very encouraging for us to see the growth in
audience numbers each year, and the appetite of audiences to explore deeper into this area of
International Cinema. This year’s enlarged festival will bring a depth to our programme, a wider
range of entertaining stories and an exciting line-up of guests”

About the ICA
The ICA supports radical art and culture. Through a vibrant programme of exhibitions, films, events,

creativity and exchange with visitors. Founded in the late 1940s by a group of artists including

showing and exploring their work, often as it emerges and before others. The inaugural ICA / LUX
Biennial of Moving Images was launched in 2012, and the ICA Cinema continues to screen rare
artists’ film, support independent releases and partner with leading film festivals. The ICA
welcomes 400,000 visitors a year to its building on The Mall in the heart of London. The Director of
