Running from Thursday 5th to Sunday 8th May at the Prince Charles Cinema in London, this year’s Terracotta Film Festival features a good range of films and the full line up can be found at the bottom of this post.

One film that already comes with a solid recommendation from me is Gallants. The film featured highly in my top ten Asian films last year (I cheated somewhat with the release dates for my list) and it finally receives its UK première as part of the Terracotta film festival.

In addition to the films, the festival also boasts many special guests including Gallants director Clement Cheng, Karate Girl star Rina Takeda and Yakuza Weapon director Tak Sakaguchi.

Terracotta is an interesting festival and one with an important place in my diary. I look forward to checking out a number of the films and reporting back here.

Tickets are on sale via the Prince Charles Cinema and the ticket prices are as follows,

Early Bird BEFORE 15th April: £7.50 or (£6.00 for PCC Members)
FROM 16th onwards: £8.50 or (£7.50 for PCC Members)
Festival Pass: £70 (entry to all films with reserved seating)
