Category: New York Asian Film Festival (NYAFF) 2019

Now in its 18th year, the New York Asian Film Festival (NYAFF) is North America’s leading festival of popular Asian cinema, which The Village Voice called “the best film festival in New York,” and The New York Times has called “one of the city’s most valuable events.”


Based on a real event in the late 1880s, a competition that that persists today, SAMURAI MARATHON, starring Takeru Satoh, Nana Komatsu and Mirai Moriyama, and directed by Bernard Rose, should rock the cinematic richter scales when it is released. It was the opening night film for the 2019 NYAFF.
