The purpose of this paper is to examine the globalization of cinema in the context of the developing world. This is with a view towards understanding what the phrase "globalization of cinema" has come to stand for and why, and to see if there have been new developments in
the area. This will be done with specific reference to the cinema of India and Hong Kong.
Asian Cinema is a seminal journal, which has been published since 1995 by the Asian Cinema Studies Society under the stewardship of Professor John Lent.

The journal currently publishes a variety of scholarly material - including research articles, interviews, book and film reviews and bibliographies - on all forms and aspects of Asian cinema. The journal's broad aim is to advance understanding and knowledge of the rich traditions of the various Asian cinemas, thereby making an invaluable contribution to the field of Film Studies in general.
