Global Stage Hollywood to introduce Japanese films and Best International Features for Oscars

This year's festival is being produced by Douglas Montgomery, founder and CEO of media consulting company, Global Connects Media. "The changes in the global entertainment industry have been accelerated greatly by the effects of CV19 and the work from-home-culture. Audiences more than ever are open to content from different cultures and the Global, diverse cultural community is perfectly positioned to take advantage of this opportunity. We are very excited to show the wonderful, curated films and panels at GSH 2022."

In addition to the opening film, the festival lineup consists of four feature films, two documentaries (one world premiere, one North American premiere) and a selection of shorts, encompassing a broad range of genres reflecting the diversity of world cinema. Highlights include two Best International Feature submissions for the Academy Award®. Goddamn Asura, Taiwan's official submission, is a "multi-layered psychological drama" that delves into a random shooting by an ordinary teenager through six characters, a popular video game and an alternate reality. The feature picked up a Golden Horse and three Taipei Film Awards.

Cinema Sabaya, Israel's official submission for Best International Feature at the 95th Academy Awards®, follows eight women from different sides of the Middle East conflict who participate in a video workshop using footage they have shot of their lives. The film was Israel's own Ophir award winner and is therefore automatically put forward as the country's submission.

Rounding out the festival will be three industry panels, taking cinema fans deep into Hollywood and the global entertainment business, and are outlined below:
