Letter to NETPAC Members from Aruna Vasudev

Aditya Tuesday October 8, 2019

Dear Members,

I am happy to announce that Ashley Ratnavibhushana and Philip Cheah will take over as Joint Presidents of Netpac

Nick Deocampo served as President for over a year but has resigned for personal reasons. Ashley and Philip, who have been on this journey with NETPAC from its very inception, have been asked to shepherd the organisation to its next elections in 2022. They are both committed and capable of furthering the cause of Asia - Pacific Cinema. I thank Nick for his services to NETPAC .  

The New International Board is now updated on the Board page.

The  Treasury will now operate from Brisbane, Australia, where NETPAC International is registered. Details about membership payments will be conveyed shortly. 

Let's all join in and carry Netpac to even greater heights.

With my thanks and  best wishes to all of you.

Aruna Vasudev  President Emeritus  NETPAC, International 

Congratulations Bong Joon Ho

Congratulations to Bong Joon-ho TXmvGYanrJgMzRNgaSEK The victory of Parasite by Bong Joon-ho, at the 92nd Academy Awards (aka the Oscars), is a clear sign of global change. The history of cinema is being written on our eyes! For the first time, the most prestigious cinema awards were given to one film - the Palme d'Or at the 2019 Cannes Film festival, the Best Asian film at the Asia Pacific Screen Awards and the Oscars. For the first time, we see such unanimous acclaim of one film. Can we consider it as a real victory for Asian cinema? Yes surely, and Korean cinema that began its journey to victory in the beginning of 1980s has successfully arrived. Through this film, we understand that the world has become truly global, as are all the problems highlighted in it.
