United Power of Asia! - Infusing Life into Asian Films

Recently, Europe has been suffering from economic crisis, while Hollywood has faced an increasing sense of insecurity due to the stereotyped production system, and the depletion of new contents and incentives. Therefore, numerous film professionals and industry experts have turned their attention to Asia as a Hollywood’s alternative, as the demand for new locations and contents have increased concurrently.

Consequently, both the quality and size of Asian film market have shown the steady development. Also, many Asian governments have expanded their effort in stimulating film productions and infrastructure, as well as adopting the relevant policies. As of 2014, there are 5 Asian countries – China, Japan, India, Korea, Russia – in the list of world’s top 10 national film markets, occupying about 34% (12.4 billion USD) of the entire world box office (36.4 billion USD). Nevertheless, Hollywood is still the frontrunner of the world film industry, and auteurism is represented mainly by European Cinema. What would be necessary for Asian film industry to overcome such ceiling and reach a further development?
