The General Assembly of the Vesoul International Film Festival of Asian Cinemas was held at the Maison du FICA, 1, rue Paul Petitclerc in Vesoul, October 28, 2021 in the presence of Mr. Alexandre Garniron, Deputy Mayor of Vesoul in charge of culture and Mr. Gilles Lazar, President of the culture commission of the Regional Council of Bourgogne - Franche - Comté.

The 28th Vesoul International Film Festival of Asian Cinemas will take place from February 1 to 8, 2022

The festival is in mourning: Marc Haaz , its technical director, was killed in a plane crash on July 30, 2021, at the age of 33. He was one of the pillars of the festival. The whole team got together to divide up the multiple tasks which he always accomplished naturally, with a smile.

Marc Haaz was not only the technical director of FICA, he was also an actor, director, producer, distributor. He was destined for a brilliant career in the world of cinema. It was a solar being struck down, in full professional rise, by fate.

Tribute will be paid to him during the opening ceremony on February 1st 2022.

It was decided to create a Marc Haaz Jury, made up of young directors, awarding a Marc Haaz prize, to a young director.

Tadao Sato was on the Hawaiʻi International Film Festival jury in 1988 along with the other jury members- Donald Richie, Sir Lester James Peries, Richard Schickel, and Nadia Tass

Tadao Sato, as I experienced him, was a fierce and tireless advocate for overlooked Asian visual Storytellers who make exceptional films by being truthful about their specific cultures and experiences.
