Sample text

My goal in this chapter is simple and straightforward: to point out the ascendant global presence and impact of cinema from the periphery that, by virtue of entrenched perceptions of ageless hegemony, is often regarded as secondary and, even where acknowledged, still classified as lacking impact. In doing this, I hope to begin correlating discussions of cultural hybridity and postmodern practices of appropriation to the emerging empirical evidence that increases our awareness of the global dynamics of cinema.

The most exciting new films from across Asia are showcased at the festival in Pusan, Korea in October, where a selection is picked up and presented at Rotterdam at the end of January, so that European and American programmers can take their picks and proliferate the films’ exposure by scheduling them for further screenings. And so on . . Thus, besides the official film markets that accompany some of the big festivals and that remain the domain of film industry professionals and clear-cut distributors, there is the informal but increasingly networked and efficient system of international flow through festival links, where a small film from an obscure source is picked up by a succession of festivals and shown consecutively in various countries, thus getting truly global exposure, even if this exposure does not bring along measurable financial gains.
