The first Screenshot: Asia Film Festival, a joint project of the Film and Media Studies Program and the Asian Studies Center, continues through Oct. 10.
The festival includes full-length films from all over Asia, as well as shorts from some lesser-known Asian filmmakers.
Screenshot: Asia, which began on Oct. 6, was created to “bring rich, diverse programming to Pitt’s campus and around the city, and to give students an opportunity to engage with arts programming at the ground level,” according to the website.
The festival is screening 12 feature and short films from Asian and Asian-American filmmakers, including films from Iran, South Korea, Japan, and Nepal. Highlights include a film by the horror legend Kiyoshi Kurosawa (“Wife of a Spy”) and a conversation with Sunny Lahiri, co-writer and producer of “12x12” (“Barah by Barah”) after a screening of the film on Oct. 9.
The films will be shown at various locations, including the tent on Schenley Plaza, the Frick Fine Arts auditorium and the Carnegie Museum of Art. Tickets are $10, $5 for students and free with Pitt ID.
