It’s awards season! Film buffs will have to wait until April for next year’s Oscars due to the coronavirus pandemic. But there are still plenty of festivals and awards ceremonies putting on a show. One of the lesser known, but no less prestigious, film-related awards is the Asian Film Awards. The Asian Film Awards (AFA) began in 2013, organized by the newly-formed AFA Academy. The Academy is a collaboration between the Tokyo, Hong Kong and Busan international film festivals. It was created to promote and encourage Asian filmmakers and cinema.

The AFA includes many of the usual categories, like Best Director, Best Visual Effects and Best Editing. But for time’s sake, I will just focus on the movies nominated for Best Film. A full list of the nominees can be found here.

So here is everything you need to know about the Best Film nominees at the 2020 Asian Film Awards
