The Far East can seem very far, but movies can sometimes bring it a little bit closer. Udine is a city in the far north-east of Italy that for the last ten years has hosted the Far East Film Festival, an international film festival that as become a major showcase for Asian contemporary popular cinema in Europe and point of cultural exchange between the two continents. Once a year, the city is invaded by art films, blockbusters, celebrities, and auteurs, and by a great number of fans that come to watch the movies by day, and party by night.
If the above trailer for the festival is to be believed, Udine is the "sweet spot" of Italy and this festival, mixing culture, architecture, international exchange, and parties is a particular sweet spot for Check-in Architecture.
