Vivian Huang of Asian CineVision, sponsor of the Asian American International Film Festival of New York, calls it "Singapore fever." She is referring to the success of Eric Khoo's Meepok Man on the international film festival circuit and to the interest this film has generated
in motion pictures coming from the island nation of Singapore. After being dormant for decades, Singapore's cinema culture has begun to heat up.
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. From 2012 Asian Cinema will be published by Intellect as part of our Film Studies journal portfolio. 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.
