Published twice a year over a period of five years, NANG’s ambition is to build a wonderfully rich and profound collection of words and images on cinema, for knowledge, inspiration, and enjoyment.
Beautifully-printed on fine papers, NANG broadens the horizons of what the moving image is in Asia, engaging its readers with a wide array of stories, contexts, subjects and works connected by the cinema.
Each and every issue of NANG is structured around a specific theme and created in collaboration with a unique group of guest editors and contributors based both within and outside Asia.
Since its inception, NANG has been indexed in the International Index to Film Periodicals compiled by the Fédération Internationale des Archives du Film (FIAF).
As an independent, non-ad-driven publication, NANG solely relies on the support of its readers and sponsors.
