This chapter examines PIFF's ever-increasing scale and scope by considering the tenth anniversary of 2005 as the pivotal year when the festival's development took a decisive turn to reinforce its regional identity. The chapter illustrates PIFF's focus on Asian identity by investigating special events and programs associated with the tenth anniversary on critical and industrial levels. While the Asian Film Industry Network (AFIN) and the Asian Film Market (AFM) show how the festival accentuated its regional/industrial ties, special programs such as Asian Pantheon, Remapping Asian Auteur Cinema 1, and Special Screening for APEC Films reinforce PIFF's role as a critical hub for Asian cinema. Paying particular attention to a new education program (AFA), the chapter argues that PIFF's strategic arrangement of diverse audience-friendly public events reflected the festival's awareness of its changing relationship with local audiences.
