Film Expo

The Call for Films is now closed. The selected films will post here in February.

AAS Film Expo was established as a conference program in 2011 by the Asian Educational Media Service (AEMS), a program of the Center for East Asian and Pacific Studies at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Documentary and independent films on issues reflecting contemporary life in Asia are projected in a dedicated screening room with a schedule running from Thursday through Saturday.

All films presented in the conference are promoted in a separate AAS Film Expo booklet which includes contact information for distributors or filmmakers who self-distribute. In addition to the Film Expo booklet distributed to conference attendees, film listings are included within the online program and mobile app.

The 2020 Program will include approximately twenty-five (25) films. All films will be available for viewing Thursday, Friday & Saturday. There is a set schedule as well as an opportunity to view “on-demand”. An “on-demand” screening area allows additional viewing opportunities for attendees who miss scheduled screening times.
