Welcome to the East Meets West Film Forum + Festival!

Mongolian film festival and forum

East Meets West Film Forum and Festival, UIaanbaatar, Mongolia Oct 5-8, 2010

The Arts Council of Mongolia (ACM) is pleased to announce the inaugural East Meets West Film Forum and Festival (EMWFFF) to be held in UIaanbaatar, Mongolia from October 5 – 8, 2010.

With support from the Asia-Europe Foundation and the Open Society Institute, ACM will bring together filmmakers and film industry professionals from Asia, Europe, Central Asia, the USA and Mongolia for this very special event, the first of its kind ever to be held in the country.

The film industry in Mongolia is currently in a state of flux, and local filmmakers struggle to make an impact at an international level. As such, ACM identified a great need to bring support and recognition from the global filmmaking community to Mongolia.

A panel of international guests has been invited to meet in Ulaanbaatar to share ideas, screen films and work with Mongolian filmmakers to further the local industry. East Meets West will consist of film screenings with post-viewing discussion and Q+A sessions, a day forum focused on the global film industry and workshops for up-and-coming Mongolian filmmakers.

    I learned from a friend who is behind the success of this film festival. Zaya is doing a fabulous job pulling everything together for the festival and her attention to detail shows in every aspect of the festival.This festival will go a long way promoting the arts and film making in Mongolia. Mongolia owes a great deal to Zaya for her hard work and dedication in making this film festival such a memorable success. This will reflect very positively on Mongolia as a country and the arts. I would recommend a highest civilian award for Zaya for her public service to her country and the arts.
