The Festival Awards are:
AUDIENCE AWARD (Golden Mulberry, Silver Mulberry, Crystal Mulberry)

Retrospective sections:
Every year, Far East Film focuses on a different historical aspect of East Asian film production, by presenting a retrospective programme planned and arranged by one or more experts in the corresponding field. To celebrate these annual retrospectives, C.E.C. publishes a monographic book that aims to make up for the lack of information available in Europe and Italy on the rich history of Far Eastern film production.
Out of Competition:
Movies considered of extreme value and importance by the Board of Directors, but that do not meet the official Festival requirements of time, duration or release date, will be included in the Festival’s Out of Competition section
Ties That Bind:
Ties That Bind is the leading training programme for European-Asian co-production. It is targeted at European & Asian producers, 10 of which will be selected with a feature film in development for the workshop. The 15 participants will attend 2 workshops
Focus Asia:
Focus Asia represents FEFF’s Industry/Market section, the venue for cultural exchange between Europe and Asia where future genre film projects are developed.
EFF Campus:
The FEFF Campus is an educational project, dedicated to young Asian and European journalists, organised as part of the Far East Film Festival.
