Films

Experience multiple perspectives on Asia through the lens of classic and contemporary film. Our world-class film series offers opportunities to see films not widely available in the United States, as well as to meet directors, actors, and film scholars.

Unless noted, films are shown free of charge in the three hundred-seat Meyer Auditorium. Seating is first come, first served. Auditorium doors open approximately thirty minutes before show time.

While the museum is closed, check the Freer and Sackler blog for recommendations of films you can stream at home. Check our schedule often to join virtual discussions with Tom Vick, the museum’s curator of film.
