Asia Through the Aperture is an ongoing discussion series exploring contemporary and historical Asian moving image culture and art, and reframing discussions around ‘curating Asia’ and moving image practice.

Aperture is dedicated to screening some of the boldest, most challenging and striking films from the Asian and Pacific regions, exploring issues around diversity and cultural identity, as well as the inherent links between and blurred boundaries within Asia and the Pacific. Aperture is the only festival in the UK to cover the whole of the Asian region and also to explore Oceania.
