Friends of AFA welcomes CathayPlay! A new partner for members to check out in 2022.
CathayPlay is a streaming platform that showcases Chinese-language independent films from around the world. The independent films on the platform grapple with social issues from diverse perspectives. Despite the boom of Chinese films in recent years, Chinese independent filmmakers lack opportunities to present their works to a global audience. CathayPlay provides the platform for these filmmakers.
