Joey Leung, boss of Terracotta and the sharpest-dressed man on the London film festival circuit. (It's not that difficult a title to win, though.)In 2009, the year of the first Terracotta Far East Film Festival, I wrote a shortish review of four of the films shown there. In 2010 I didn't get to the Festival at all, because The Belated Birthday Girl and I were swanning around Japan at the time. In 2011, I bought my first ever Terracotta Festival Pass, saw eleven films in three days while under the influence of crippling jetlag, and reviewed them all for Mostly Film in an article I whimsically chose to entitle Terracottadammerung. In 2012, that got cranked up to sixteen films in four days, but at least without the jetlag.

The Terracotta Far East Film Festival 2013 will take place on June 6th-15th at the Prince Charles and ICA cinemas in London, and yes, I'll be there again. This time round, however, my accompanying article for Mostly Film is a pre-festival preview, which shares a title with the Festival's Twitter hashtag for this year: #TFEFF13. I haven't seen many of the films as yet, but thanks to a combination of press notes and YouTube clips, I've had a go at recommending the ones to catch at the fest next month. If all those words I've written feel too much like hard work, don't worry: the accompanying Red Button Content for the piece is a playlist of the trailers for all 27 films. I set it up to help me with the research for the article, and now I've finished with it you may as well have it. You're welcome.

The trailers appear in the order in which they appear in the Festival, with screening information included. Book your tickets through the Terracotta Festival site, obviously.
