James Marsh
Asian Editor; Hong Kong, China

Originally from England, James has lived in Hong Kong since 2001. He is a programmer for Fantastic Fest, pretty nifty with a pair of chopsticks, yet harbours no aspirations to learn kung fu. When not attending film festivals, watching films, writing about films, or shopping online for Blurays, James is most likely out drinking somewhere, hogging the karaoke mic. Either that or he's asleep and snoring loudly, but that rarely happens. There are just too many films that remain unwatched and not enough hours in the day.
