TERRACOTTA FAR EAST FILM FESTIVAL ANNOUNCES NEW DATES & NEW LOGO FOR 2012
AND… IF THAT ISN’T ALREADY MUSIC TO YOUR EARS, THE FESTIVAL ALSO INCLUDES A ‘FRIDAY 13th: TERROR COTTA NIGHT’
Familiar with Terror Cotta? You may have read about them recently…
Well this may explain:
Yes, the 4th edition of Terracotta Far East Film Festival will take place in London April 12th – April 15th 2012 and will continue it’s support of films and emerging film-makers from across the Far East.
Terracotta Far East Film Festival curates and exhibits a selection of films from Asia which are hand-picked from the best of each years vintage.
Happily returning to the Prince Charles Cinema, in the centre of Chinatown, London, the festival is in a perfect location for an event which is pan-Asian in nature, encompassing films and cultural events.
Guest actors and directors will attend the festival to introduce their film, host Q&A sessions afterwards, run Masterclasses and interact with festival goers.
Building on the success of previous editions ‘LATE NIGHT HORROR’ slot, and to co-incide with ‘Friday 13th’ the festival organsiers are delighted to expand this slot into a triple bill for this year. This special late-night event will be TERROR COTTA branded and will run into the early hours of the morning; more details on the ‘Friday 13th: TERROR COTTA NIGHT’ to follow.
The Terracotta Festival branding has undergone a change to include a new logo that indicates a variety of countries, films, range of genres and was designed by the Official Design Sponsor of the festival, What Is Bobo. Yep… No question mark needed.
“Terracotta’s new branding of block colours reflects the diverse range of films that the festival is dedicated to screening. The richness of colour in the logo comes to life as it combines with imagery and plays on the theme of close up pixelation as the viewer gets deeper into the festivals films. What is Bobo look forward to once again being the Design Sponsor for the festival, and are excited to have developed its contemporary new style.” says What Is Bobo director, Robyn Larkin.
Joey Leung, the Festival’s founder, comments: “We are extremely happy to be working with What Is Bobo again as our Design Sponsor for the festival, and the result of the rebrand has been fantastic and has real longevity to it.”
Further announcements on the line-up will be made within a fortnight, exclusively on Twitch.

Looking forward to Terracotta, but the Terror Cotta will be the part I skip. Horror/terror is the one genre I don’t do….
Unsure if I replied before, but agreed… For me also, the horror part is of less interest… I have a pass for all the other films though. Hope to (finally) meet you at one of the screenings… Best… J
I think you actually did respond before – maybe you deleted your comment?
Which screenings are you attending? I’m guessing Himizu for sure?
