The Osaka Asian Film Festival (March 4-13, 2016) will showcase a selection of films about homecoming as part of its 11th edition.

The festival will open with Taiwanese director Huang Ming-cheng’s “Wansei Back Home” and close with Japanese director Okita Shuichi’s “The Mohican Comes Home.”

The 13 title competition section includes Royston Tan’s musical whimsy “3688,” drama “Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong,” Thai hit “Heart Attack” (aka “Freelance”), the world premiere of Jason Kwan’s “A Nail Clipper Romance” and Hong Kong actor Chapman To’s directorial debut “Let’s Eat.”

A section of films from Vietnam includes “Big Father, Small Father and Other Stories,” “Yellow Flowers on the Green Grass” and current hit “Sweet 20.”

The festival plays at venues across the city including the Umeda Burg7 and ABC Hall.
