The goal of this festival is to offer independent filmmakers and young
artists and their individual and wildly varied modes of expression an
appropriate platform for their work. The festival wants to bring the
audience closer to other ways of life; the festival will give insights
that are not shown in the mass media and mainstream film. ASIAN HOT
SHOTS BERLIN further aims to create a cultural exchange between German
and Asian filmmakers. We aim to support young filmmakers with
inspiration, contacts and new perspectives that opens doors for new
projects and international cooperation. As a first in 2009, ASIAN HOT
SHOTS BERLIN will introduce a special award, also put to audience
voting, to recognize marked achievement for framing a voice for the
intercultural experience in film: the Manfred Durniok Prize.
