Asia has a strong presence at the 60th annual Berlinale (Berlin International Film Festival). As this article shows, Asian films will be both opening and closing the festival, with roughly two dozen more shown in between.
I find this article interesting, because (except for India) Asia has not had too strong of a presence in the movie industry, mostly dominated by the U.S., France, and Germany. But Asian cinema is up and coming, especially with the help of Bollywood movies. I would not be surprised if more Asian actors and directors start becoming household names. As the article states “the Asian movie industry is rich and full of promise”.
